People’s Partnership announces cancellation of the project to acquire three 90-metre Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV’s) to target drug running, gunrunning, and people trafficking in Trinidad and Tobago’s waters.
Sailors from the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard are already in training on the vessels in Britain when the announcement is made.
According to Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, “The country is not at war out in the seas; the country is at war on the ground, in our streets and in the towns within Trinidad and Tobago.”
She clearly fails to understand that the drugs and guns enter Trinidad and Tobago by sea, in spite of all the evidence to indicate this.
The result: more drugs in our society; more guns on the streets; more violence.
