Seven months after her 70-year-
old husband Finbar Daniel went miss-
ing, Jannet Daniel is begging the pub-
lic to help her get closure.
"I am praying that he will be found,
whether dead or alive," Jannet said,
during an interview at the Guardian
South office last week.
She said since Daniel disappeared
on March 28, after attending a march
in Couva, hosted by the All Trinidad
Trade Union, she
has been in a state

in her eyes, Jannet
said, "Not a day
passes that I don t
think of him.

She said last week she went to the
Ste Madeleine Police Station hoping
to get some news.
"The police told me the only way
they can go further with the case is if
they get more information. Aside from
that they cannot do anything. I am
not satisfied with that but they said
its only so much they can do," Jannet
Calling on the police to get more
information from Fera Vincent, who
has been named as Vincent s com-
mon-law wife, Jannet said her one
wish was for her husband to be found.
She said she separated from Daniel for
several years but five years ago, they
re-kindled their relationship. She said
they had plans to move in together.

living with Daniel for the past 25 years

The T&T Association of Retired Per-
sons has expressed concern about the
elderly increasingly becoming targets
This follows the recent attack on a
67-year-old nurse on duty at the St James
Medical Complex, the murder of a Sangre
Grande nurse, and the butchering of
Tobago couple Richard, 72 and Grace
Wheeler last week.
In a statement, the association, stated:
"TTARP wishes to express its extreme
horror at the rising incidents of crime
against the elderly (60+) in T&T."
"This organisation is appalled at the
brutality inflicted on the elderly couple
in Tobago a few days ago and makes a
special plea to the authorities to appre-
hend the killers and bring them to face
the law. A case of sexual assault on the
elderly was recently reported in the news.
"Today, the elderly are victims of aban-
donment, abuse, domestic violence, insti-
tutional discrimination, sexual assault
The association said that security was
one of the main concerns in this age
"To the elderly, few places are con-
sidered safe. For many, neither home,
street, village, town, neighbourhood are
havens of safety. There is a noticeable
increase in fear of crime among this group
and among their families."
"This is due to the fact that crime
detection in the country is poor, statistics
reveal that in the majority of cases, the
perpetrators are not apprehended and
brought to justice, as a consequence, the
elderly are easier targets for all manner
"In these circumstances, TTARP wishes
to reiterate its appeal to the authorities
to undertake a study of this phenomenon
and institute appropriate measures to
address this problem affecting the elderly
in our society."
