The Prime Minister Expresses Disgust At Citizens Responsible For Attacking Tourists In T&T.

by | Feb 12, 2019 | 1 comment

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has expressed disgust at citizens responsible for attacking tourists in Trinidad and Tobago.

His comments come after a Canadian couple was beaten and robbed in Tobago on February 3rd.

63-year-old Roderick Mac Mullin and his wife Neena Mac Mullin, 65 were at Gafton Beach when they were accosted by two assailants who have since been arrested.

Two months prior, on December 26th, an elderly couple from the United Kingdom was attacked and robbed at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.

72 year old Sally Wilson and her 74-year-old husband, Michael were visiting on a cruise line.

Mrs Wilson required emergency surgery following the incident.

Addressing these issues, Dr Rowley said attacks against tourists have a negative impact on Trinidad and Tobago’s image in the eyes of the international community.

He said Tobago, in particular, is more so tarnished by crimes against foreigners as the Government has actively tried to market the sister isle as the ideal tourist destination.

Dr Rowley blamed parents’ failure to properly raise children, for this scourge of violence.

He advised parents to admonish their children against ill behaviour as it will only land them in a jail cell.

The Prime Minister was speaking with members of the media as he toured several works sites in Tobago on Monday.

    The Prime Minister is so right. The attacks on foreigners are the result of bad education. In school children learn about white people being slave masters and beating up poor black people. With this sort of education young people of T&T must have the desire to attack white foreigners. Furthermore the Ministry of Education missed out on the importance of tourism for the ecconomy. When teachers have a bad attitude about tourism one must expect that their students act accordingly.
