    Officially T&T has no porous borders. There are border check all over.However, the weapons arrive the same way drugs arrive in containers. Customs officers who check containers thoroughly will not live much longer. Therefore they don’t do their job properly. This is not a new story.Even when Patrick Manning was primeminister customs officer who didn’t comply were killed in front of their house.When Kamla took over it became obvious that T&T employs customs officer at habours only for spot checks which means containers don’t get screened and no dogs are employed to find drugs. The customs are unable to prevent the smuggling of weapons into T&T. T&T needs a national security service which includes the coast guard, the police, the regiment and prison service. The members of this service should never display their name in the open. Once criminals know names of officers they black mail and kill them.Also under the rulership of Dr Keith from Mason Hall T&T remains one of the leading crime countries of the world.world.
