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 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.
