Griffith defends decision to appear on Buju’s stage

Po­lice Com­mis­sion­er Gary Grif­fith yes­ter­day de­fend­ed his de­ci­sion to ap­pear on stage dur­ing Bu­ju Ban­ton’s “I am Leg­end Con­cert” stat­ing if he had not done so it would have re­sult­ed in a strained re­la­tion­ship be­tween T&T and Ja­maica.

Grif­fith’s com­ments came hours af­ter he was crit­i­cised on so­cial me­dia for ap­pear­ing at Ban­ton’s con­cert at the Queen’s Park Sa­van­nah, Port-of-Spain, stat­ing that he was just look­ing for fame and to score points.

Buju can't legally enter T&T but Young prepared to grant exemption

Buju Banton's criminal record does not give him legal access to Trinidad and Tobago because of this country's immigration laws.

But, if you're one of the thousands lining up to see him perform on Easter Sunday, don't let your heart fail as yet.

Minister of National Security, Stuart Young says he is prepared to give Buju an exemption to enter the country so that the concert can go on.

The minister was asked about the issue at today's post-Cabinet news conference.

"Buju Banton falls foul of our immigration laws in T&T," Minister Young said.
