SUSPEND the police officers involved in the shooting deaths of three men in Morvant.
“Thank you very much and goodbye.”
This is essentially what outgoing D’Abadie/O’Meara MP Ancil Antoine was told by the People’s National Movement (PNM) leadership yesterday.
Antoine was summarily removed as the party’s candidate for the 2020 general election following his “insensitive and objectionable statements” at a campaign meeting on Saturday.
All police officers whose weapons were discharged during an incident that left three men dead in Morvant two Saturdays ago are to be placed on administrative duty.
The Express understands that this decision has been taken regarding “all” officers who would have fired their weapons during the encounter in which Morvant residents Noel Diamond, Israel Clinton and Joel Jacobs were killed.
Three cruise ship workers who are in State quarantine tested positive for the coronavirus yesterday.
So far 12 workers who arrived in Trinidad and Tobago on board the Enchantment of the Seas have tested positive for Covid-19.
This has left the almost 300 nationals who have been in quarantine for 24 days saying officials have broken their promises again.
