WAKEEL HOPES FOR BETTER
Head of the Waajihatul Islaam-
iyyah (The Islamic Front), Umar
Abdullah, believes yesterday's
no-show of several Imams, sen-
ior police officers and Chagua-
nas Mayor Gopaul Boodhan to
yesterday's peace initiative by
former Unruly Isis members was
a big disrespect.
Harry Ramharack: Give peace a
chance for longer and longer periods
until it establishes permanent roots.
Krishna Deosingh: So who com-
pensating families for departed love
ones killed during this time?
Seth De Freitas: The question
needs to be asked as to the reason
why these key invitees never at-
tended this event. Did they believe
that this was all a show and nothing
Diane Cheong: Who are they to
want to have the authorities at their
beck and call?
Visesh Lall: Waste of time. When
they were running racket all the time,
that wasn't disrespectful? Sweet
T&T yes, these ppl get air time, get to
make demands... Hmm
Vessel more than adequate
David Brash, managing director
of Trinity Offshore Supply and Tow
Ltd, which was recently awarded a
contract to transport building mate-
rials and heavy equipment to Tobago
on the Trinity Transporter barge,
yesterday promised to deliver to the
business community on time.
John Mandu: I, too, would insist
the vessel is good enough in order to
keep a big contract.
Jake C Gosine: At least it better
than none. The man with the barge is
one happy camper though. Surely a
very lucrative contract.
Meera Dookhoo Hey people, you
know a barge is towed right? It has
no engine. It could not get any slower
Shariff Mohammed The peo-
ple of Tobago love this with all their
Gopaul Rampersad: Is it just me
or is anyone else seeing we are going
backwards daily. If Kamla did that all
those clothes stores in T&T would
have been without mannequins.
Raj Sum: Great is the PNM. And
I feel sorry for PNMites who have
defend such foolish actions. But they
rather suffer in silence than ever
speak out against this.
AG to decide if ferry
provider gets 2nd chance
Works and Transport Minister
Rohan Sinanan says the Attorney
General Faris Al-Rawi will have to
determine if Intercontinental Ship-
ping---the provider of the Super Fast
Galicia---will be allowed to retender
to service the domestic sea bridge.
Judy Garcia: If you had problems
with them why allow them to tender
for the job again? Forget about them,
you don't go back, move forward.
Dawesh Maharaj: Is it a raffle you
Stephanie Fournillier Edwards:
Give the people a chance to do they
work. Oh gosh man!
Carol Mahadeo-Jobity: Well, if
they are paying more for two slower
boats doesn't it make sense to just
give the second chance? But then
again, how will they eat ah food and
fill the pockets?
Crawford dead since October
According to an international
newspaper, the Middle East Eye,
Crawford, who had been hit it by a
US drone strike in October last year,
eventually "succumbed to his inju-
Loretta Ruth: One thing is for
sure, there is nothing for u to enjoy
where ur at right now. No mercy
there, no 72 virgins, too late too late.
Diane Cheong: One less terrorist!
You advocated the killing of Chris-
tians but we will still pray for your
soul. And the Christians say, "Amen."
Melina Hutchinson: Rest in
peace Crawford, you were a troubled
Maya Gabriel: I hope this is not a
Single dad appeals for home
Despite being abandoned by a fe-
male relative and living in squalor in
a house overrun by rats, two-year-
old Arti Gajadhar has never lost her
Fateha Ali: Hope he and his
daughter get the home.
Valmiki Sinanan: But ungrateful
people get house and three years rent
Shirley Thomas: Why is there
this level of poverty in Trinidad? Are
there not lots of unfinished housing
projects overrun in some cases by
animals? Couldn't those houses be
brought up to a certain standard by
the Government then rented out at
a basic rent to poorer people, those
who will never be able to buy their
Sandra Maharaj: How come peo-
ple still have to live in these condi-
tions, it's sad! He might even have to
pay property tax on that house too.
Natalie Ben: This made me soo
sad... at least he tryin and is a re-
sponsible dad. I gonna try my best
to help this one jus coz the man ain't
run, he stand up and fight.
Avanell Mckenzie: Why files
always go missing. And who's held
accountable when they do?
Up to April 13, 2017, 3,155 people
were owing the Housing Develop-
ment Corporation (HDC) over $106
Melina Hutchinson: Yuh see how
boldface some Trinis are! They want
the govt to mind them as if they were
helpless babies. Everybody owes
them something but they don't owe
Pooran Baldeosingh: Will never,
never collect any money.
Nila Mahase Maharaj: They
closing down agri business---it losing
money. But sitting on their hands at
Nerissa Dqueen: Successive
gov'ts are to blame for this. Why
should people be allowed to occupy
State provided homes and they're not
willing to pay for it?
John Mandu: Why did HDC wait
for defaulting mortgages to grow to a
$100 million to speak out.
