Acting Commissioner of Police McDonald Jacob said the Police Service stands ready to protect citizens against any eventualities.
He made the comment in response to a Facebook Live by Jamaat Al Muslimeen leader Imam Yasin Abu Bakr.
In the broadcast, Bakr issued a “warning” to the Government and Police Service (TTPS), over the injustice he has been seeing towards people of African descent.
Bakr said: “In Trinidad, don’t fix the society, don’t give to the poor what is their due, don’t start to be fair and just, don’t let go the prisoners who you locking up for 15 years without a trial, don’t do that and you will see what will happen- remember I warn you today.”
“I warning the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, I warning the Police, I warning the Coast Guard, I warning everybody who is involved in the repression, the oppression of African people, I warning you today, this is your last day warning.”
He spoke about injustices in the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examinations and injustice in the prison system.
Acting CoP Jacob said the police service continues to monitor intelligence and will act accordingly. He said “there are much more resources available to the various law enforcement agencies now than in 1990.”
