Exactly a month after the mur-
der of attorney Dana Seetahal,
family members are still hopeful
that police will arrest and convict
Seetahal s niece Danielle Fran-
cois, who met with police inves-
tigators yesterday to discuss her
aunt s murder, said she had con-
fidence that the police were doing
the best they could.
Seetahal was ambushed and
killed by gunmen while driving
through Woodbrook last month.
She had left the Ma Pau casino
and was on her way to her home
at One Woodbrook Place.
After passing the Woodbrook
Youth Facility on O Connor Street
gunmen blocked her vehicle and
fired shots. She died at the scene.
Police have not been giving
details of the investigation.
Francois said: "It is taking long.
I am concerned. However, I under-
stand there are a lot of avenues to
investigate and I know they need
to make sure they secure a con-
viction or convictions, so they
would have to ensure they have as
much evidence as possible."
She said police had kept in con-
tact with family members but
accepted they were trying to keep
the information close.
Chairman of Powerful Ladies of
T&T (PLOTT) Gillian Wall said
people were still petrified after
Seetahal s murder.
"We are concerned about the
progress of the investigation as
well but we are mindful that the
police may not want to share too
much information," Wall said.
She and her group have met
every Saturday at the Queen s Park
Savannah since Seetahal s murder
for an hour-long late-night vigil
to acknowledge the loss of Seetahal
and the need for an increased
respect for life across T&T.
"There is not much confidence
that someone will be brought to
justice. We are dealing with a
nation petrified and a lack of con-
fidence in authorities to bring
results," Wall said.

who was assigned to the adult
library, was attacked by a man who
threw her to the floor.
Goodman said the man was

staff member and taken to the
nearby police station.
She added: "We decided to close
the library to have an intervention
with our staff members.
"The trainee was sent to the hos-

in good health. We usually have a
lot of security on every floor of the

for the public to be alarmed and
added that the man had not entered
the building with a weapon.
