Barataria/San Juan MP Saddam Hosein has filed a private motion that will be heard in the House on Friday, in which he intends to condemn Government’s handling of crime.
The motion comes days after the UNC abstained from supporting the Anti-Gang bill, which can assist with crime detection. The party has said it will not support anything until there is procurement reform.
Hosein claims that “The Government has failed in its management of the organs responsible for intelligence, under-resourced the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution and cut the budget of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service which led to low detection and conviction rates.”
Hosein will highlight thousands of citizens plus businesses that have been negatively affected by the high level of crime.
