A party promoter has signalled his intention to sue the State over the actions of a group of fire officers, whom he claims have been attempting to sabotage his events.
In a pre-action protocol letter sent to permanent secretary of the Ministry of National Security Lydia Jacobs, lawyers representing Gregory Cedeno revealed that he is considering filing a lawsuit for harassment and tortious interference following incidents at two Carnival fetes, last month.
Officers of the T&T Fire Services say they have received more than 100 emergency calls this morning due to flooding.
The calls followed hours of prolonged rainfall across Trinidad last night.
Reports are that traffic is at a standstill on Wrightson Road and heading East along the Churchill Roosevelt Highway.
Even while fire officers respond to calls in Port-of-Spain, around 5 am a PTSC bus crashed on the East Bound lane in El Socorro blocking two lanes of traffic.
Five fire officers were electrocuted while trying to rescue persons trapped in flood waters in Barataria.
Four were treated and discharged, one remains warded.
Injures ranged from cuts and bruises about the body while the officer warded suffered more serious injuries.
This took place after a ladder being used came into contact with a high tension wire.
