How many times have we
read in the newspapers that
vastly different sentences were
given out by judges and magis-
trates for what we believe were
similar crimes and offences?
This includes the very contro-
versial issue of granting bail.
Does social class of the offend-
er make a difference? Do race,
gender or even political con-
nection factor in? Or, is it really
only the evidence in the case
that is considered? These are
the serious matters that we as
a society need to look at in a
professional, independent way.
Added to this are the over-
whelming issues in the prisons
that can be linked to matters of
the courts, sentencing, etc.
Some of these are the effects of
uneven sentencing, long justice
delays, overcrowding, trafficking
of prohibited items in prisons
to even killings of prison offi-
Is there are relationship
between how a prisoner reacts
if he feels the sentence he
received was unfair and subse-
quent crime and violence inside
and now outside the prisons?
One constitutional provision
that is yet to be implemented
by His Excellency, the Presi-
dent, is the Sentencing Com-
mission that was passed 16
years ago. While it would not
solve all of the problems in the
judiciary and prisons, it will go
a long way it making right
many of the wrongs.
Further, while we are not
blaming the current President
as the law was passed since
2000 and no action was taken
then, the public needs his
intervention here and now as
he is the one in office.
This Sentencing Commission
has a major role in both edu-
cating the public as well as
getting the views and opinions
on these critical criminal justice
system matters. We should not
and cannot take away these
rights of citizens so easily. The
powers that be should be striv-
ing to ensure these fundamental
rights are provided at all times
to the citizens, otherwise they
will be failing the society.
Please, let us do some of the
things that we can do to get
our country into a better state.
The Sentencing Commission is
one such institutional strategy.
NEED FOR PROPER
Tobago is indeed a wonderful place to
spend a vacation and so, nine members
of the Sarafat's family set out in April to
enjoy the beautiful ambiance of Crusoe's
isle. All went well as planned, enjoying
togetherness with prayer, laughter and
fun.However, at 2.25 am Monday, April 4,
tragedy struck when my eldest sister
Haliman Mohammed passed away. (Inna
Lillahi wa inna illahi Rajoon).
I would like to thank the doctors at the
staff at Scarborough General Hospital
for all their help in assisting us. More so,
Mr Calvin Dick of Lambeau, for his assis-
tance in sacrificing his time and sleep
and helping us in every possible way to
get the deceased returned the same day
to Trinidad for burial. Without him and
Ashma, it could not have been possible.
May Allah bless them all.
Grateful for the compassion and help
Trinidad's society (as distinct
from Tobago's) is collapsing. There
are signs of societal collapse every-
where, and it takes a statesman to
publicly recognise this. The crying
need of the moment is not to build
highways etc, but to arrest that col-
lapse of society and to try to re-
cover what has so far been lost.
Violent crimes can only increase
in a collapsing society, and no police
force can ever successfully respond
to such violent crimes. Prisons also,
do not solve such a problem. They
only make the situation worse since
the imprisonment of so many
breadwinners will reduce an ever in-
creasing number of families to des-
When the prisons are filled with
the poor, and the rich call for more
prisons, then violence is certain to
increase in such a collapsing society.
The Government must publicly
acknowledge that we live in a col-
lapsing society and that religion is
perhaps, better placed than many
other institutions to play a strategi-
cally important role in successfully
arresting that collapse. How much
longer must we wait for political
parties and politicians to stop their
blame game and accept that they
do not have all the answers, and
that others must also be consulted?
I suggest the organisation of a
National Consultation on Crime in
order to discuss the subject of vio-
lent crime and, perhaps, to search
for a greater role for religion in soci-
ety, and in affairs of the State, that
can hopefully arrest the continuous
decline and collapse of the society.
Such a consultative convention
may recommend, for example, that
the three major world religions
present in Trinidad, ie, Christianity,
Hinduism and Islam, should each be
permanently represented in Parlia-
ment by a religious scholar who has
the knowledge and competence to
articulate what the religion has to
offer in response to such critical na-
tional issues as rampant and esca-
lating violent crimes.
Imran N Hosein,
Religions can arrest the collapse of society
