The Ministry of Land and Marine
Resources has received its first court victory
concerning illegal quarrying on State lands
in east Trinidad.
The ministry yesterday stated it had suc-
cessfully prosecuted and received court con-
victions concerning three individuals for
engaging in illegal quarrying on the State
The incident occurred seven years ago at
Sahadeen Trace, Mora Settlement, Sangre
Grande, on a parcel of State land upon which
there was an existing agricultural lease.
The matter wrapped up last Monday after
a six-month trial which resulted in two guilty
verdicts with one of the defendants pleading
guilty at the beginning of the trial.
In laying down judgment, Magistrate
Alexander Prince ordered the defendants pay
$30,000 each within two months or serve six
months imprisonment and that the truck,
excavator and water pump used to commit
the act be forfeited to the Commissioner of
State Lands and sold thereafter.
Defendants were charged under Section
25(b) of the State Lands Act, Chapter 57:01,
which states that "where material other than
asphalt is dug, won, or removed" on or from
any State lands in Trinidad and Tobago without
a licence in the prescribed form, is liable, "on
first conviction to a fine of $60,000 and
imprisonment for a term of six months."
The law states that any subsequent con-
victions may incur a fine of "$120,000 and
imprisonment for one year."
The ministry stated: "The judgment was
a milestone in that it was the first illegal quar-
rying victory attained since the Ministry of
Land and Marine Resources was created in
October 2013 and it was one of the fastest
trials of that nature to be expedited in the
magistrate s court."
Minister of Land and Marine Resources
Jairam Seemungal, the permanent secretary
and the Commissioner of State Lands thanked
staff members for their efficient, effective and
professional management of that and other
land matters currently under its purview.
The Ministry said it continued to work
closely with the Ministry of National Security
on combatting illegal occupation, land-grab-
bing and praedial larceny. GA
A Barrackpore couple

Gopeesingh to launch
an investigation into an
incident in which their

The family visited the
T&T Guardian s South
office yesterday to high-
light their plight, as they
say so far their com-
plaints have fallen on
"She was accustomed
sleeping in her own
room before this, but
now if I don t sleep with
her, she cries every
night," said Camille.
"This has left her trau-
matised, she has
stopped doing her
school work and now
she is afraid of the dark."
Camille said Martina
was at first afraid to tell
them what happened
and another pupil told
her about it first.
"I went to pick her up
and a little boy from her
class tell me she was
locked in the room. Is
only when I ask her
then she start to tell

Camille said she is
praying for Gopeesingh s
intervention as Martina
cries everyday when she
is dropped off at school.
"Every day when I
drop her, she does be
crying to go back home.
We need the minister to
step in and do some-
thing, my child cannot
grow up in fear. Even
though we are poor peo-
ple we have rights too."

Communication department told the
T&T Guardian an investigation into
the alleged abuse is currently
The source confirmed that the

school's principal and the district
supervisor over the incident. If the
person is found guilty of these claims,
the Teaching Service Commission is
the body that will decide what action
should be taken, the source said.
