IWRN condemns treatment of Nafesah Nakhid

The International Women’s Resource Network (IWRN) is adding its voice to the list of condemnations on the issue regarding OJT teacher, Nafesah Nakhid.

The organisation says it objects strongly "to such actions as they can only deepen the country’s already archaic thinking on a number of out-of-the-box issues".

It says Trinidad and Tobago would never be able to rise to international standards once it continues to channel judgements and decisions in accordance with selfish and backward standards.

IWRN: Stop killing our women

The International Women's Resource Network (IWRN) has issued a warning that if Trinidad and Tobago's social and judicial systems are not reviewed quickly and also further strengthened to address the country’s social ills, society will begin to see murders as “normal.”

The IWRN has issued a statement extending condolences to the families of 23-year old Sharlene Somai and 65-year old Petra Manwarring who were both found dead today in seemingly unfortunate circumstances.
