Director of Public Prosecutions
Roger Gaspard will deliberate on
evidence gathered against four
Special Reserve Police officers who
were arrested earlier this week.
Investigators from the Profes-
sional Standards Bureau of the
Police Service yesterday submitted
a report to the Office of the DPP.
In the report, the officers, who
are assigned to the Praedial Larceny
Squad, stationed in Princes Town,
are accused of kidnapping, assault
and misbehaviour in public office,
among other charges.
Three of the accused are 27 and
from south and central Trinidad,
while the third suspect is a 32-year-
old constable from San Juan. All
have about three years service.
Two were arrested while on duty
in Princes Town and another sur-
rendered on Wednesday. The fourth
officer was held at his home on
They are accused of kidnapping
a 48-year-old Debe handyman on
September 14 while investigating
the theft of garden equipment.
It was alleged that the officers
beat the man and then dropped
him off in a lonely area in Princes
Meanwhile, two Southern Divi-
sion Task Force officers are expected
to be placed on an identification
parade today in relation to a robbery
A man reported that on Wednes-
day he was in Marabella when the
officers searched him and allegedly
stole $2,800 from his pocket.
The officers, both 27, from San
Fernando and Moruga, were
detained on Thursday.
The Arima Borough Corporation is complaining
about inadequate funding to combat the chikungunya
In a press release yesterday the corporation said
despite warnings from the Ministry of Health regarding
the seriousness of the disease resources have been
inadequate from the Ministry of Local Government.
"The Arima Borough Corporation is being inundated
by calls for spraying and treating with a higher than
usual mosquito infestation while reports of the incidence
of the chikungunya virus has increased.
"This corporation, like several other PNM-controlled
regional corporations, has had its request for greater
budgetary resources denied and does not either have
the resources or the equipment to undertake the spray-
ing or preventative measures which the burgesses are
demanding in wake of the outbreak of the virus," the
In response to the complaint, Local Government
Minister Marlene Coudray said yesterday she could
not understand why the corporation would issue such
She said there was a recent meeting in which all
mayors attended during which she told the corporations
to submit proposals regarding funding for ChikV.
"I really do not understand on what basis would
they now come and issue such a release. We spoke
about the proposal and to date I have not received it.
So I really do not have time for that.
"There is another meeting coming up next week
and I am hoping the corporation would attend,"
Arima Mayor George Hadeed said he was not sure
whether the corporation had been asked to submit
a proposal at that meeting as he had reached the
meeting a bit late.
"But if there was a proposal I will work on it imme-
diately and I will ensure that it would be sent as soon
as possible. What the minister told us is to use the
monies from our unspent balances but this takes a
very long time to access," he added.
He also encouraged burgesses to do their part and
clean their surroundings and not wait on the corpo-
ration to do so.
Members of the Sursati Dance group thrilled the audience during its
performance at the Divali Nagar, Chaguanas, on Thursday night.
