Scotland defends gov’t on TTPS entering private properties

Attorney-at-law and Port of Spain South MP, Keith Scotland, is defending the Government’s claim that the TTPS can enter private property if the actions of the occupants endanger public health.

On Thursday, Rowley cautioned that enforcement of laws and Public Health Regulations could be applied to persons at or in private premises in certain circumstances.

The claim by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley last week caused a huge uproar among the citizenry and members of the law fraternity.


The Law Association at the weekend condemned the comments and the Government’s interpretation of the law.

It said there are no regulations governing conduct on private property in terms of numbers of people who may be there, masks and social distancing.

However MP Scotland disagreed with the Law Association and maintained that under the circumstances, the law was applicable.
