Anti-Gang Legislation

Persad-Bissesar: Opposition not to blame for failure to pass Anti-Gang legislation

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says the Government is playing politics with crime and blames yesterday's breakdown of law and order in East Port-of-Spain on the inability of the Government to get crime under control.

The Opposition Leader says in a statement that the Opposition is not to blame for the failure so far to pass the Anti-Gang legislation and insists that the Government only needs to agree to a sunset clause of two years for the Opposition's support.

Persad-Bissesar issued the following statement on Tuesday.
