The Point Fortin Borough flag
will fly at half-mast today in honour
of former mayor Victor Chin Kit.
Chin Kit, 84, died yesterday. He
had been ailing for several years.
Present mayor Clyde Paul con-
firmed Chin Kit died at his home at
Clifton Hill, Point Fortin, which he
shared with his wife, Naomi, who
survives him, along with their two
children, Ian and Dianne.
Chin Kit, an electrical engineer,
served as an alderman on the first
Borough Council in 1980 and as the
second mayor during the period
Paul, who served as town clerk
during Chin Kit's tenure, described
him as his mentor, saying he encour-
aged him to stay at the borough and
serve the people.
"The vision for Point Fortin, which
we are seeing unfolding, came from
Chin Kit. The lessons I learned about
public service and local government
came from him. Even though he no
longer was involved in active politics,
he was always around giving support.
Whenever I had a problem, I would
go to him," Paul recalled. Both Paul
and former councillor Grantley Wells
described Chin Kit as the best mayor
Point Fortin ever had.
Paul said Chin Kit was a long-
standing member of the PNM and
the party had been in contact with
his family to assist with a fitting
sendoff. In the meantime, he said,
he had ordered the borough's flag to
be flown at half-mast.
Local MP Paula Gopee-Scoon said
she was saddened by the news of
She said: "He has been known to
have been ill for some time and per-
haps it was time to go. Knowing how
deeply religious he was I am assured
that he is in a better place with God.
"I want to say that I have known
him in another capacity, as a family
man and friend of my parents. So
he has known me from childhood.
"I remember him for his intelli-
gence, his very dignified manner in
conducting all affairs, deeply reli-
gious, very committed in everything
"He truly was a servant of the
people of Point Fortin and a man of
great integrity. You don't find many

Clement, 38, and Kelvin Wallace, 24 --- complained about
the representation they were receiving from their lawyers.

see the statements to give them instructions. Agreeing
they ought to see the statements, the magistrate told
them they would have to decide whether or not they
wanted to change their attorneys. The magistrate also

their state of readiness and which witnesses they would
be requesting for cross-examination and said she expected
