A group of 94 Special Reserve
police officers will form a Praedial
Larceny Unit, the sole purpose
of which will be to protect farm-
ers and fishermen from thieves.
The group, which comprises 12
corporals and 82 constables, grad-
uated from a seven-week training
course yesterday at the Centre
Pointe Mall, Chaguanas.
Speaking at the ceremony, Food
Production Minister Devant
Maharaj said he hoped the unit
would be able to put a dent in
cases of praedial larceny.
"What started off as petty theft
to satisfy household food needs
escalated to the theft of entire
fields of produce, truckloads of
livestock and even acts of violence
on farmers. Praedial larceny is now
dictating the environment of the
agriculture sector," the minister
"According to a research report
published in 2008, praedial larceny
cost farmers and fisherfolk an esti-
mated US$11.3 million (TT$70 mil-
lion) over a six-month period.
"Farmers are unable to recover
the funds they have invested.
Farmers are not interested in con-
tinued investment in agricultural
endeavours. Farmers choose to cul-
tivate crop types that are less vul-
nerable to theft. Farms and farming
enterprises are being abandoned.
"In the long-term, we end up
in a situation where there is limited
local produce sold at high prices
and an increased dependence on
expensive imported produce."
Maharaj pleaded with con-
sumers to play their part by ensur-
ing that there was no market for
"You must safeguard your health
by purchasing crops or meat from
reputable vendors and suppliers."

Attorney David West has taken
issue with a news release from the
office of the Attorney General,
concerning the recent extradition
of Amarnath Jagmohan to Singa-
pore to face fraud-related charges.
In a statement sent on Thursday,
West said the release, which was
referred to in a report in this news-
paper on Wednesday, contained
two false claims.
West said contrary to what was
reported, Jagmohan did not make
an unsuccessful habeas corpus
application during his extradition
matter nor did he make an unsuc-
cessful no-case submission.
"Contrary to the report, Justice
(Ricky) Rahim on April 11, 2013,
ordered that should the applicant
Amarnath Jagmohan not be brought
before the magistrate by 4 pm on
April 11, his continued detention
thereafter would be unlawful and
he shall be released from custody.
"An unsuccessful application
would have been if my application
were dismissed," West said.
He said the no-case submission
was made after the requesting state
closed its case but was not respond-
ed to, as the case was later reopened
with supplementary evidence.
"At no time was the no-case
submission responded to. How can
it be stated by the Central Authority
Unit that an unsuccessful no-case
submission was made?"
On Tuesday, Chief Magistrate
Marcia Ayers-Caesar, sitting in the
Port-of-Spain Eighth Court, issued
an order committing Jagmohan to
custody to await his extradition to
It is alleged that some time in
May 2003, Jagmohan visited several
moneylenders in Singapore and
attempted to change counterfeit
euros for Singapore dollars.
He was also found in possession
of counterfeit euros. He is facing
four charges of uttering forged doc-
uments and one charge for posses-
sion of counterfeit currency.
Jagmohan was charged in Sin-
gapore but before his trial, he fled
the country while on bail. He was
held in T&T on January 29, 2013,
under a provisional warrant of
West, a former head of the Cen-
tral Authority, also criticised the
statistics presented in the release.
