Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley addressed the student body of the University of the Southern Caribbean yesterday, on the issue of crime in Trinidad and Tobago.
He informed the students that the Government was working on the crime situation even if they appeared to be quiet on the issue.
This after the Prime Minister was heavily criticized by the Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar after last Monday’s killing of Prison Superintendent, David Millette.
Persad Bissessar condemned Dr. Rowley for what she labelled as his deafening silence on the issue of crime and his apparent refusal to inform the public of Government’s plans to stem violent crime in the country.
He also gave the assurance that the State of Trinidad and Tobago would not buckle in the face of criminal conduct in Trinidad and Tobago.
He revealed that that the Government was resolved to confront those who intended to make crime a permanent feature on the landscape of Trinidad and Tobago.
He also urged students to not give up on their life paths and goals he ensured them their knowing right from wrong will save the country.
