No reason for Opposition not to support law *

Trinidad Express / As he appealed for Opposition support for the Anti-Gang Bill, Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi said there is no logical reason why the Opposition should not support it.

“Nothing should stand in the way of passage. This bill was good enough for the Kamla Persad-Bissessar-led government. It was the law for the entire period when she was there (in government)…until it expired in August 2016,” he said, speaking at yesterday’s post-Cabinet news conference at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann’s.

“We cannot allow situations as prevailed in Enterprise, and in the Beetham most recently, to rear its head in Trinidad and Tobago,” said Al-Rawi. “We cannot continue to allow the circulation of videos across social media platforms where identifiable Trinidad and Tobago personnel are involved in what appears to be gang activity or gang recruitment. The broad spectrum of the anti-gang law can capture this behaviour.”
