agencies are offering a US$25,000 reward
for information which may lead to the
arrest of a Trinidadian man who has been
wanted in the US for more than ten years

A release from the public affairs section
of the US Embassy said US authorities
believe the 49-year-old fugitive, Andre
Neverson, has been living in the Caribbean
since fleeing the US in 2003.
The release described Neverson as "armed
and dangerous" and said: "He has a violent
criminal history with a pronounced pattern
of violence toward women."
Neverson is light-skinned and of African
descent. He is six foot two inches and his
last known weight was 240 lbs. He usually
has a shaved head and has a scar on his
forehead. He is known to wear wigs to dis-

has launched an initiative called Project Romeo
that will help victims learn a skill and transform
Ten victims will be trained in barbering in east
and west Trinidad by two professional barbers.
Addressing the participants at the Police Admin-
istration Building, Port-of-Spain, on Friday, head of
the unit Margaret Sampson-Browne said with each
clip of a strand of hair, they would be one step closer
to living and saying that they have made it.
The programme, which will be expanded to other
skills, began with barbering Sampson-Brown said.
In keeping with the unit s aim to turn victims into
victors, she said the unit would also be launching an
AVA Project. AVA is an acronym for Addressing Vic-
tims Anywhere, and instead of crime survivors being
referred to the unit by investigators of crime, the
unit will engage the community.
Delivering the feature address on behalf of the
Commissioner of Police, ACP Joanne James told the
group to take the skill that will be taught to them
and develop the community that they live in. She
said the participants will be learning a trade that will
enable them to create a niche market.
Facilitators of the project, retired police corporal
Junior Guitan and Rudd Gonzales, told the gathering
that barbering could open many doors for them and
possibly others whom they might eventually teach.
The programme will run for six weeks from the
end of the month and will be facilitated by Guitan
in the east and Gonzales in west Trinidad.

in the second degree, assault in the first degree and
criminal possession of a firearm," the release said.

In September 2005, US investigators visited
