Police have identified the burnt body of a man found in a car in Hope, Tobago this morning, as Dwarika Moses 20, of Les Coteaux.
Police are treating the death as a suspected homicide.
According to reports about 2 am this morning, fire officers responded to a call about a burning car on Belmont Link Road, Hope, Tobago.
When investigators arrived at the site they noticed a body in the vehicle.
Tobago recorded 9 murders last year.
Central MP and former planning minister in the People's Partnership government Dr Bhoe Tewarie says what has happened to the Sandals project is unfortunate for Tobago and for the tourism sector in T&T.
However, he has put the blame at the feet of the government.
"Dr Rowley and his obstinate, belligerent ministers are directly responsible for this failure. From the very beginning, no one in the Government would explain the project properly. The story changed as they moved from one explanation to another as if no citizen would remember what they said before," he said.
Government “fell flat” on its face on its flagship Sandals project after the administration withheld information from the public and dismissed concerns on it, says Opposition Leader Kamla Persad- Bissessar.
“The position presented during (yesterday’s) press conference that Sandals withdrew based on negative publicity is bordering on absurd. It’s yet another attempt by Government to deflect attention from their incompetence, “Persad-Bissessar added in a statement yesterday.
