Anti-Crime Bill

Government, Opposition meet on crime legislation today

The Government has accepted the proposal by the Leader of the Opposition, Kamla Persad-Bissessar, SC, MP, to meet with the Opposition with the intent of agreeing on a bi-partisan legislative approach to the fight against crime and the criminal element. 

This follows calls by the Opposition Leader, who initially wrote to Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley five weeks ago on the matter. 

The meeting is scheduled for noon today, Friday 16th February, 2018 at the Parliament building.
