The issue of crime is affecting all citizens of Trinidad and Tobago not just the business community.
This is according to the President of the San Juan Business Association Vivick Charran.
On the heels of comments by Oropouche East MP Dr. Roodal Moonilal that businessmen were being attacked by criminal elements, Mr. Charran revealed that while this may be so, the problem was a much bigger one.
He said that they have been attacks on the business community however there has also been attacks on other sectors of society.
He said that there is no miracle solution and that there needs to be a more holistic solution to the problem.
He maintained that it was up to citizens to come forward and help law enforcement in their fight against crime.
