Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal says women should be allowed to defend themselves and he is calling on the Government to permit the use of non-lethal weapons in the quickest possible time.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley told the Parliament on Wednesday that he will make a decision based on the advice of “appropriate experts.”
However, Moonilal said the PM is ‘dilly-dallying’ on the life and death issue of defenceless citizens.
He pointed out that Police Commissioner Gary Griffith has himself made a recommendation and he (Moonilal) called for the appropriate legislation to be brought.
Moonilal also urged civic organizations to put pressure on the Government with regard to this issue.
