Phillip Edward Alexander said the time has come to set up a commission of enquiry into the criminal justice system in Trinidad and Tobago.
Speaking outside the Red House last night during the 6th night of silent action, and candlelight vigils, Alexander said the one thing that Andrea Bharatt’s death has exposed is the failure within our criminal justice system.
Alexander said, “I give Andrea my solemn undertaking (that) in her name we will mobilise all of Trinidad and Tobago and make sure that the changes that should have been made to protect her… non-lethal weapons for women, regulation and registration of PH taxis, the simple ones…”
He added, “We also need a commission of enquiry into the criminal justice system, top to bottom, stem to stern.”
He said they will be outside the Red House until Friday, which he said will be the hardest night, as Andrea will be laid to rest that day.
