COP wants quick Government action on Enterprise

The Congress of the People is calling on the Government to move urgently to address the crime situation in Enterprise, Chaguanas.

The COP issued the following statement on the matter:

"This morning another man was gunned down in Enterprise Village, Chaguanas at about 10 a.m. This is the second murder since the killing of Sylvan Alexis, the brother of reputed gang leader Selwyn ‘Robocop’Alexis. Other shooting victims are still in hospital.

This open war zone continues to explode despite the continuing massive the police and army presence in this tiny area of a few blocks in Enterprise.

The Minister of National Security and Commissioner of Police must break their silence and tell the people of Enterprise what they are doing to end the killing spree in their community immediately.

They must also tell the residents what they are doing to end the occupation of their neighbourhood by criminal elements which is continuing despite the expansion of police and military presence.

This once peaceful community is being wrecked by the ongoing criminal violence.

The Congress of the People calls on Government to act swiftly to guarantee the right of the residents of Enterprise to safety and security as a matter of the utmost urgency."
