Time Running Out For South Registration
It's the final day of the Venezuelan migrant registration process here in T&T. Last night a handful of anti-immigrant protesters caused a stir outside the Queen's Park Oval calling for Government to close the borders. The protest was organized through social media. Police Commissioner, Gary Griffith told media the protesters were in fact breaking the law holding a demonstration without police permission but he was going to be flexible with them.
Police eventually moved them from the scene. They took their protest through Woodbrook and eventually camped outside the Parliament building. National Security Minister, Stuart Young is expected to hold a news conference this evening at 6 to update the nation on the registration process.
Massive Haul By Prisons Officers
In what's being described as the largest find of this year, so far, prisons officers have seized a number of items, following a search at the Top Security area at the Remand Facility. According to a release from the T&T Prison Service on Thursday, officers found over 350 loose cigarettes, 20 cigarette lighters, 35 cell phones, 40 sim cards, 5 cell phone batteries, 39 head sets, 400 loose wrapping paper, 4 Wi-Fi Hotspot devices, razor blades, scales, improvised weapons and over 2 pounds of a plant-like substance.
Second Search On Sat
For the second time in as many months, police have executed a warrant at Radio Jaagriti. This time, officers took three tapes. “In my own view, this is political harassment and the police service which is here to protect and serve the national community is being used for political purposes.”
