Defence Attorney criticises treatment of individuals in police custody

One defence Attorney says persons being held for questioning by members of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service are stripped of their basic human rights and are ill-treated.

Popular Defence Attorney, Fareed Ali says individuals who are in police custody in relation to investigations are held beyond the length of time allotted by law and are also mistreated by officers.

Today Ali is saying such action by members of the TTPS should be met with recourse and persons should be held accountable.

Ali said police officers are given too much leeway when handling prisoners and is calling for this type of system to change.
