Dear Sir/Madam,

It is with great consternation that we the residents of Oropune Gardens, Piarco have learnt of the threats made to Ms Colleen Holder who is a much-appreciated stalwart in our Community. That certain miscreants have singled out Ms Holder for intimidation is wholly unacceptable.

As a community, our non-tolerance of intimidation and harassment is unequivocal. Ms Holder has our unwavering support and no resource will be spared to pursue and apprehend the culprits.

The Ministry of National Security and the Police Service of Trinidad & Tobago are abreast of this issue and have also pledged their support in this important matter of security.

Yours Sincerely,

Oropune Gardens Community Group

Oropune Police Youth Club
