MAN, 51, KILLED IN CRASH, COPS
HUNT DRIVER WHO FLED SCENE
A grandfather who had just dropped
one of his grandchildren to school on
Monday was killed instantly when the
van he was in slammed into a concrete
Betty Motilal Thank God the grand-
children weren't in the vehicle at the
time, it could have been a different out-
Gemma Salina Is he a wanted man?
Gail Oneta Huggins How in Heav-
en's name can u leave two ppl injured
without even calling an ambulance?
Nerissa Dqueen With a friend like
that, you don't need enemies!
Susan Mohammed Praise God the
grandchild was not the vehicle. RIP
Young bride disappears
A 28-year-old Aranguez, San Juan
mechanic is planning to sue the State
after he was detained and interrogated
by police for almost 24 hours in connec-
tion with his marriage to his 17-year-old
Andre Sookdar That's illegal though,
a 17 y-o cannot marry someone over the
age of 19.
Kandace Bharath But the issue is
that she is missing tho. Sounds like the
police just doing their job. We want po-
lice to fight crime but when they try ppl
jump up and have a problem.
William Ganness If this is a legal
marriage why is the Child Protection
Unit intervening? They law has not yet
been proclaimed and they would have to
wait for its proclamation---so how come
the Police Child Protection unit acting?
Don't they have protocol (documenta-
tion, circular, directive, legal department
etc) for new laws? Or they just act willy
Ryan Steinberg Jr The real question
is who married them knowing the girl
Delicia Dime Yes, yes the law is
flawed but she is STILL MISSING.
Ashlyn Alleyne Her parents probably
sent her away.
Raj Maharaj The police service needs
to educate their officers on some legal
guidelines on everyday problems. Also
if they were physically prepared to deal
with a lawless population, they would
not be beaten and chased out by hood-
for no service
Joint Select Committee member
Franklin Khan yesterday admitted that
the agent for the Super Fast Galicia, In-
ter-continental Shipping Ltd, was paid
$18 million by the former People's Part-
nership government for services it never
provided to the sea bridge.
Clayton Moore That is called fraud.
Eric Williamson Could it be that
that money was held in some sort of es-
crow until the Galacia began operation?
Playing smart with stupidness as usual.
The money was placed in an account,
unlike Bridgemans which did not even
provide an account or list of beneficiaries
or tax clearance before the contract was
awarded. A small man contractor sup-
plier has to provide tax clearance before
even being considered by a ministry for
a contract. If he tenders for a contract
more than $450,000 he has to be vat reg-
istered. Bridgemans had none of this yet
they got a multi-million dollar contract.
Heck, they didn't even have a boat to do
Jonothan Micheal Smith You have
the evidence. Do something about it now.
Mimi Bocas These people too should
be made to answer publicly in the JSC
hearing, after all they appeared to have
allegedly misappropriated the nation's
funds. What penalty may they face? Also
Chairman, could you make Wade Mark
not raise his voice so loudly when asking
questions? And could you make him stop
shouting such long statements and actu-
ally ask a question?
another JSC go
A public war of words has developed
between former Port Authority of T&T
chairman Christine Sahadeo and cur-
rent acting Port CEO Charmaine Lewis
following their appearances during Joint
Select Committee looking into the ferry
Shyankaran Lalla This is good, the
public can read between the lines.
Azard R Mohammed Yeah words,
words, words !
Nerissa Dqueen Cat fight!....liter-
Soldier killed, colleague in-
jured in Wake shootout
While members of the Defence Force
maintain that their fallen comrade, Lance
Corporal Marcus Gay and Corporal Marc
Blunt were on surveillance duty at a wake
in Princes Town when they were shot,
residents are contending the soldiers
were there to execute a hit.
Simon Sookoo The army will deny
Crystal Taylor When I heard about
this I knew something was wrong. sol-
diers undercover? This story not adding
up at all, this called for a proper investi-
Karlene Sonders Princes Town get-
Francisco Raphael Santana Well I
guess they no longer under cover!
Firstlady Alicia Wake is a dangerous
place to be these days...hmmm
Stephy Frost Army and undercover
investigation. .....allyuh really think all
Trini dotish.. .and to top it off, the police
say they were working with them...now
allyuh really think we dotish?
Khadine Greaves So in reading this
article I has to ask myself if this is really
Trinidad or Mexico?
Melina Hutchinson The army con-
firmed that these men were on guard
duty. The residents as usual are sup-
porting the criminals by saying that the
soldiers were there to execute someone.
