ROWLEY SHAKEN BY
The gruesome murders of
13-year-old Videsh Subar and
his 56-year-old sitter Rose Mo-
hammed have impacted on Prime
Minister Dr Keith Rowley, so
much so that it has left him very
disturbed and shaken.
Daniella Bissessar: Why blame
Government for killing in Trinidad &
Tobago? People clean your house.
Javed Baksh: He'll probably need
another vacation to deal with his
Rae D Lewis: Why blame the
government (whichever party in
charge.) Lots of people have info on
who doing the crimes but will keep
Asha Ramsundar: Yea right!
Come on, please.
Chrissy Chris: Is not a minister's
son or one of his friends. Ordinary
citizens and their children don't
Kelly Edghill: Very disturbed and
shaken; do something about it. You
are supposed to be ruling our little
Glenda FrenchePopeau: Some
of the brainless people in Trinidad
think that the Prime Minister can
wave a magic wand and get rid of
the escalating crime. This issue of
crime was left to fester. I remember
reading not so long ago, throughout
the last administration, of headless
bodies and all manner of crimes tak-
ing place. So it needs a joint working
together of political parties of all
persuasions to address this issue.
The politicians need to accept that
they need outside expertise to deal
with the torrents of crime that the
country is experiencing, that seems
like the only solution.
Rosalie Cassidy Crandon: It
is disturbing. We need to turn into
prayer warriors as we not only pray
for our loved one's safety but for the
criminal elements. They will contin-
ue to be a presence but there is much
we can do as individuals as we show
concern for our country.
Probe not done
The Integrity Commission has not
yet completed its investigations into
Port-of-Spain South Member of
Parliament Marlene McDonald, who
was to be sworn in as the new Minis-
ter of Public Utilities yesterday.
Sean Ramnarine: But how did
the PM say the IC cleared her?
Dale Ragoo: I thought Rowley
would be different. I looked for
change but how can you bring back
someone who you fired and is pres-
ently awaiting the results in the in-
Kelly Edghill: How can you put
back someone who is suspected
of wrong doing? Let her name be
cleared first before doing so.
Martin Singh: She should have
done the honourable thing and not
accepted any position pending in-
Risheeram Rampersad: And no-
body eh riot yet. Hehehe
Melina Hutchinson: Looks like
we need to set up an Integrity Com-
mission to deal with the Integrity
After 14 hours of intense prayers
and a massive operation by police
for the safe return of San Fernando
businessman Gregory Liang, he was
set free by his captors in Beetham
Gardens Thursday morning.
Neil Charle: They actually think
the man would be in a car? The crim-
inals smarter than the police and
they are currently misleading the
police in order to get off their tail!
Obviously they would keep the man
in an undisclosed location.
Arlene Portia Grant: Look in the
forest. Do you really think he will be
in someone's home?
Kylene Dowden: I'm not sure we
should be posting the police's every
move on social media...I suppose the
criminals could have Facebook etc
and keep moving the victim.
Trinidad Nice: How he reached
town are they going to drive around
Trinidad with him in the front seat?
Review all cameras from that street,
check all vehicles on the road that
hour of morning. Street camer-
as must have a record of few that
Krystal George: Thank God he
was found alive.
Derr Jagger: Worst thing is hav-
ing a business in T&T. Successful or
Kevin Rajendra Ragbir: Lol. I
know he was released but if he was
kidnapped in the early morning,
wouldn't the perpetrators have him
secured in a house somewhere? Why
waste time searching vehicles if they
not searching houses and the ransom
was paid. If the police were involved
in the operation why not put a track-
er in the money bag? Maybe the fam-
ily took things in their own hands
and negotiations were independent
without police. Don't know, but
sad that these people got away yet
thankful that he was released safely.
Johnny Depeiza: Where the heli-
copters when you need them? Is only
Independence Day they know how to
fly about for show.
Anthony Gajadhar: Oh well, it's
back to business. We jamming still.
Man freed, money paid, criminals
