“As a community, our non-tolerance of intimidation and harassment is unequivocal. Ms [Colleen] Holder has our unwavering support and no resource will be spared to pursue and apprehend the culprits…”
The following Letter to the Editor, which condemns the threats and criticism levelled at Oropune resident and former TV6 news anchor Colleen Holder for calling out criminal behaviour and mismanagement at Oropune Gardens, was drafted on 11 July and submitted on 14 July by the Oropune Gardens Community Group, Oropune Police Youth Club, Oropune Village Council, Oropune Gardens Security Group, Oropune Residents and Friends, Fourth Avenue Youth Council and United We Stand NGO:
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.
