Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)
Roger Gaspard is expected to decide today
whether charges should be laid against
a Southern Division police constable who
allegedly brandished and fired his gun
while at Caura River on Saturday.
Public information officer of the T&T
Police Service Insp Wayne Mystar con-
firmed that a police file on the matter has
been submitted to the DPP for instruc-
"A file was sent to the DPP for instruc-
tion. Investigations are continuing. The
officer is not in custody.
"The officer was allowed to leave pend-
ing investigations and we await the
instructions from the DPP. He (the officer)
is not on suspension," Mystar said yes-
According to a report, the police con-
stable, with over 15 years of service, was
seen showing his personal firearm around
4 pm on Saturday at the popular liming
spot and firing some shots into the air.
Mystar said once "there is evidence to
support these allegations, which is of
course a serious offence, the necessary
action will be taken and the officer will
be dealt with according to the law."
He added that the police service "will
not stand for such action and behaviour
like that as it relates to firearms."

Today marks ten days
since Penal father of two
Alex Sookhoo went
missing while bathing at
Columbus Bay, Cedros.
His relatives remain
hopeful that the body of
the 28-year-old bus driv-
er of Lowkie Trace would
surface soon so they could
get closure and set his
Yesterday Sookhoo s father Nandeo, speaking with
the T&T Guardian in a brief telephone interview, said
the family had been conducting prayers and making
offerings to Mother Ganga (Hindu deity of the sea)
to release Sookhoo s body so they could perform his
Nandeo said it had been a very traumatic and dif-
ficult ten days for the family and they just wanted
to have some measure of closure.
He said they were hoping that the body would
"Everybody is still in a sad state, there is nothing
we can do. We are in a bit of a helpless state right
now. We did a certain amount of personal rituals and
we had a prayer ceremony near the ocean, Mother
Ganga is a living being you know, and we had to give
her worship to release the body. We have done that
and we are hoping that with the help of humans and
God, God inspires man and woman to do something,
(that something will happen). We are going by faith
right now," he said.
Sookhoo was last seen alive around 2.45 pm on
April 13. He dived off a rock at Columbus Bay and
did not resurface.
Nandeo said Sookhoo s mother was not taking the
entire situation well.
"You know how difficult it is for nine days to know
someone drown and is still out there," he lament-
ed.Nandeo appealed to the authorities to put up signs
warning bathers about the dangers of bathing at
Columbus bay. He said he went to the beach over
the Easter weekend and many people were on the
beach. He said there were no life guards on the beach
in case of emergency and "that is a popular beaching
He said the family received spiritual guidance and
they were told that Sookhoo s body was trapped under
the water and only deep sea divers would be able to
retrieve it. Nandeo said the family was given the loca-
tion of the body and he would make contact with
the Coast Guard to get divers to search that area.
Yesterday Lieutenant Kirk Jean Baptiste, T&T Coast
Guard, said since the second day divers have been
going underwater in search of Sookhoo s body with
Dives, he explained, are done based on currents,
their speed and flow.
"Sometimes the strength of the current prevents
the body from recovery. The current could keep the
body down," he said.
Jean Baptiste said the search for Sookhoo was one
of recovery rather than rescue.
He urged bathers to exercise extreme caution in
waters around the country since climate change issues
were affecting the beach areas.
"People need to exercise extreme caution and prac-
tice proper safety in utilising our waters and river
ways as a means of entertainment and fun. The Coast
Guard understands the emotional pain and trauma
in losing loved ones in a maritime environment,
having lost some of our own in conducting rescue
efforts. Hence the reason we do not take matters,
persons missing in maritime environment, lightly,"
