TWO HELD FOR GANG RAPE
After being beaten, robbed and
gang raped by three men posing as
a taxi driver and passengers, a San
Fernando cashier was left to crawl
out of the bushes in Debe.
Melina Hutchinson: Allyuh still
getting into taxis occupied only by
men at 8 o'clock at night, knowing
that women are under attack now-
adays? Women, you need to take
personal responsibility for your own
safety! Like stick break in allyuh ears!
Oh dear, am I victim shaming? Do I
have to apologise?
Na Lo: Castrate them.
Mohini Narine: Men do not com-
mit crimes, animals do...
Reginald Hercules: Fellow men,
have respect and love for our women.
They are very important in our lives.
They bear our children, they love us
even when we are unfair to them,
support us, counsel us, fulfil our emo-
tional desires and the list is long. Treat
them right. Come men.
Brent James: Ladies, please stop
making it easy for these monsters,
who make it their business to terrorise
people on a daily basis. It's not that
I'm victim shaming its just that things
today are sadly not like before. Getting
into a car at night with two or more
strange men is a definite NO. Get a
regular driver and pay the extra $$ my
Rick Smith: The wicked thrive and
grow like grass and it often seems that
evil deeds do win. But the evil cannot
win, for their victory is sin and His
enemies will run and scatter when the
Lord comes in.
Mona Seebaran: Just see and read
what is happening in the country...
how can people be happy and safe
living in such environment? The only
way to get rid of these criminals, mur-
derers and rapists is to put in progress
the death penalty.
Elizabeth Anne Banfield: 24
years of age... smh. Look at the age of
young ppl committing these crimes.
Anne Marie Carroll: Great job
TTPS... rape sentences need to reflect
the horror of the crime. 15 to 20 years
a priority at Caroni
Works and Transport Minister
Rohan Sinanan says the public
can expect better service at the
new Caroni licensing division of-
fice and promised that corruption
would be weeded out.
Chatt Charlotte: By "better" he
clearly don't mean customer service.
Maybe faster service. But improved
customer service requires a whole lot
Basdai Premchandsingh: A new
building cannot guarantee better ser-
vice. Remove the corrupt clerks and
Elizabeth Ramdenny: Officially
opening this office doesn't mean you
take credit for building it. Just saying.
I hope the PNM completes the rest of
UNC's projects. Especially the Arima
Vijay A Vijay: Better service with
the same public service CSR?
Anessa Simone Hamilton: Let's
hope a new building gives the staff a
new sense of pride and motivation to
Roger Alexander: You have to po-
lice the place and remove every tout
Omega Khansmith: Kudos to
Minister Rohan Sinanan for attempt-
ing to make a difference. .. Thank
Salina Singh-Marin: Minister
Sinanan, please train your officers in
simple work etiquette, reinforcing
to 2, whichever.
Carol Rajkumar: Go Princes
Town, the people working in a con-
not supporting law
Government was facing defeat
in its attempts to pass the contro-
versial FATCA bill last evening.
Michael Jattan: If you have not
engaged in corrupt practices eg mon-
ey laundering, receiving of bribes or
tax evasion then you have nothing to
hide. This continuing opposition to
FATCA in spite of the government ac-
ceding to the Opposition's request for
a JSC, raises concern and inspires the
thought that a great deal of cocoa re-
mains in the sun, despite perhaps the
many scrambles to remove as much as
possible. If it weren't for the serious
implications involved, in not passing
this bill the hilarity of the dodging
and weaving by the Opposition would
make for great entertainment.
Hollis Baptiste: The UNC is using
the Republican party as a benchmark.
Peter Corbie: I believe the reason
there is opposition against it is be-
cause of the reciprocity factor. Not
only will the US be asking us for in-
formation on US citizens but we will
also be able to seek information from
the US about Trinis who have foreign
Phillip Kushboyz Harris: Don't
sign nothing, PP. They are too intru-
sive of people privacy.
