Fixin’ T&T categorically condemns the attack on the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) by Prime Minister (PM) Kamla Persad-Bissessar and Attorney General (AG) Garvin Nicholas.
This naked attempt to intimidate deputy DPP Joan Honore-Paul is reminiscent of those directed towards:
· Mr David West – Director of the Police Complaints Authority
· Mr Ken Gordon – Former Chairman of the Integrity Commission
· Mr James Philbert – Former Acting Commissioner of Police
· Ms Asha Javeed, Ms Denyse Renne and Ms Anika Gumbs – Investigative Journalists
We maintain that the People’s Partnership Administration’s demonstrated contempt for our Constitution, Parliament, Independent Institutions and due process is dangerous.
The ‘No Bail for Guns Bill’ was already passed in the face of strong objection from the Law Association. The draconian Cybercrime Bill was reintroduced and Legal Affairs Minister Prakash Ramadhar has stated the controversial ‘Run-off’ will become law before the next general elections.
The many and major issues of corruption, the downgrade by Moody’s and fact that the integrity of our Minister of Finance is in question are now second to the dire need to protect our very democracy.
We implore all and sundry to join us at 12 noon on Friday 22 May, 2015 outside our Parliament to insist on the immediate announcement of a date for general elections. Our Trinidad and Tobago is in urgent need of peaceful and lawful intervention by The People.
