LITTERBUG HELD BY OFF-DUTY COP
A man caught dumping garbage in
a public area in Debe by an off-duty
policeman has been ordered to do 50
hours of community service.
Vijay Harry Yes man. Excellent. Now
get the ones who dump the used tyres
all over South.
Anderson Khan So where were the
ones on duty? Oh yeah, right, speed
gun around the corner, they never see
the bigger litter bugs!
Niecy Rob Very good, them does
dump their garbage all over then blame
whoever in power for the floods during
Haymatee Judy Sooknarine Good
job by policeman and the magistrate.
Our people have to understand that
littering and dumping garbage is un-
acceptable, this is what I most dislike
about my blessed country.
Gillian Walters He should have been
made to clean it up before leaving the
area. I believe if dump trucks carried
owner's name or phone number. It
would help illegal dumping.
Madonna Brandon It has to start
somewhere! Hope it teaches him a les-
son to last for the rest of his life!
Gerard Gordon-Toylor 50 alone?
Should be 50 hours a month for 50
months! When did we become such a
nasty people? We used to love, cherish,
enjoy and protect our environment,
now the country is like one big garbage
dump with small pockets of clean
spaces. Why can't we be more like To-
bagonians, they keep their island clean,
green and pristine?!
Inmates could walk
Chef Justice Ivor Archie and the
members of the Judicial and Legal
Service Commission "must do the hon-
ourable thing and step down." That's
the view of Senior Counsel Martin Daly
after the Judiciary issued a statement
yesterday saying the 53 part-heard
matters left by former chief magistrate
Marcia Ayers-Caesar now have to be
restarted as 'de novo'.
Fazir Mohammed The chief justice
need to end his silence. He needs to
give an account or step down now.
Nila Mahase Maharaj Hmmm..... not
a word from Johnny Seukaran. State
resouurces wasted again. When are we
going to say enough!?
Madonna Brandon Persons holding
high office in this country do not have
that culture of stepping down in the
event that something goes wrong
which could bring the office into disre-
Debbie Rajmani Seepersad Yes
indeed, but times and circumstances
change. Matters that were accepted or
swept under the carpet previously will
not be allowed to continue indefinitely.
Also, with the web in our hands now-
adays, it has become much simpler to
Sookhdeo Harrylal You cannot try a
man twice for one crime.
Lou Sandy I wonder if you all realise
everything deteriorating in this country.
PM cut travel $$ on
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley will
lead a team of four government minis-
ters on an official visit to Chile, in South
America on Sunday.
Ryan Steinberg Jr The reselling
continues, but this time from Russia to
Chile using Trinidad and Tobago (T&T)
liquified natural gas (LNG). Novatek,
a Russian natural gas producer that
is building an LNG plant that will sur-
pass Point Fortin-based Atlantic by 1.5
million tonnes per annum (mtpa), con-
ducted its maiden run in the spot LNG
market with a cargo it bought from
Trinidad and sold to Chile.
Fazir Mohammed The prime minis-
ter must detail his trip as to what ben-
efits it is bringing to our country.
Melina Hutchinson People have
grown so accustomed to five years of
corruption, lying and theiving dished
out by the UNC that they can't under-
stand and appreciate good governance.
They are like abused children who feel
a strong connection to the abuser.
Jake Simms Another waste of time...
the man just going on another vacation
at the expense of the country. Saying
we don't have gas but going to make
Kenny Supersad I thought we are in
a recession and the UNC left the coun-
try running on fumes. And business
class tickets are expensive.
Brian Parker A similar trip by the
former pm would have cost about 5
times more; do the research.
Kwasi Thomas Must commend the
PM for cutting costs with less family
and friends and smaller government
ministers on his travels notwithstand-
ing he's not even traveling first class at
beat innocent man
Social media users applauded Ma-
caulay residents yesterday, after videos
surfaced of them apprehending and
dealing a dose of vigilante justice to a
man they believed to be a truck thief.
Shane Hospedales Humm that's
really unfortunate. He's really innocent
in this matter.
Kimron Daimeon Brathwaite Well

crime dey hold a man dey beat him.
Beat first ask questions later. Sorry

face! You don't do ppl dem things! If dey
had killed him wat dey was goin to say?
De lord will deal wit dem ppl.
Glenda FrenchePopeau Wow, just as

dad and Tobago are sinking further into
sewers. What very primitive behaviour.
Disgusting absolutely disgusting.
The unidentified man who was tied and beaten by Macaulay residents.
