Kamla, AG anxious to approve anti-gang laws
AND ROSEMARIE SANT
Let’s debate the Anti-Gang bill
This was essentially Opposition
Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s re-
sponse yesterday to Prime Minister
Keith Rowley’s acceptance of the
Opposition’s proposed two and a
half year sunset clause for the bill.
Debate on the bill failed last De-
cember due to lack of Opposition
support without a sunset clause.
But Government and Opposition
have been talking recently on the
crucial legislation which seeks to
increase police powers to deal with
Following talks two weeks ago,
the Opposition agreed to support
waiving Parliamentary regulations
which bar a failed bill from being
debated for six months after failure.
The UNC’s waiver allows for debate
earlier than June.
Rowley at a media briefing at Pi-
arco on Wednesday night after his
return from a Caricom meeting in
Haiti was told of the Opposition’s
new position. He accepted the Op-
position’s proposal for a two and a
half year sunset clause.
Subsequently, the Opposition
Leader issued a statement yester-
day saying: “In all of the circum-
stances, including Government’s
insistence on the importance of
the law proposed in the Anti-Gang
Bill in fighting crime, I call upon
government to move post haste to
bring the amended Bill containing
the agreed provisions and, have
same taken through all its stages
and passed at the next sitting of
Parliament (today) and, thereafter
at the next sitting of the Senate on
Attorney General Faris Al Rawi
also commented on the latest posi-
tion yesterday saying now that there
is agreement on the sunset clause
the Anti-Gang Bill will be brought
back to Parliament “as soon as pos-
sible,” but he said there are some
procedures relating to the waiving
of the Standing Orders which must
be addressed before it returns.
Speaking to the T&T Guard-
ian following yesterday’s Cabinet
meeting, Al Rawi said the country
is “anxious” to get it done and gov-
ernment remains “resolute” in its
commitment that the proposed leg-
islation becomes law.
Criminologist Professor Ramesh
Deosaran is urging that the pro-
posed legislation “be handled as
expeditiously as possible,” now that
the hurdle of the sunset clause has
Deosaran said while there were
issues of beefing up the “police
intelligence so as to satisfy the
requirements of the legislation,”
which means there is need for “ef-
fective surveillance and the coop-
eration and support of citizens,”
he believed that the legislation will
provide “a deeper reach for the
police to get into the gang culture,
for example by merely having an
association with a gang rather than
waiting until the person actually
commits a crime or criminal act.”
He said the question of trust and
confidence in the Police is also crit-
ical, “so in some ways it is not only
having the laws, but you must have
a police service that is efficient, ef-
fective and enjoying public confi-
In 2011, during the State of Emer-
gency, hundreds of people were
arrested under the then anti-gang
laws but were all released because
there was no evidence to support
their continued detention. Many of
the people have won lawsuits over
their illegal arrests.
As of December last year, the
Attorney General reported there
were just under 2,500 gang mem-
bers whose activities were known
to the police. Last year, the US State
Department report on Crime and
Safety said there were 100 gangs
operating in this country.
