Speaking at an Emancipation Day Dinner hosted by the Chaguanas Chamber of Industry & Commerce, Khafra Kambon who is the chairman of the Emmancipation Support Committee, noted that this year marks 188 years of  freedom of African slaves. He called on society to educate the youth on the importance of the day and its impact on Trinidad and Tobago.

Social Issues such as lack of education and social inequality will continue to weaken a country's health care system if governments do not put policies in place to protect their citizens.

That's the belief expressed by President of the World Medical Association Sir Michael Marmot, who spoke at the 22nd Annual Medical Conference held on Sunday at the Trinidad Hilton.

St James Man Killed Outside Home

Mitchell, 34, was found in the roadway bleeding shortly after 5am on Sunday.

Police have detained a man for questioning in relation to the shooting.

The Law Association will hold a special meeting on Monday to discuss a motion of no confidence moved against the association's president Senior Counsel Reginald Armour and vice president Gerry Brooks.

In June, 30 members signed a petition, including opposition senators Wayne Sturge and Gerald Ramdeen, questioning the conduct of the Law Associaion heads in relation to an April meeting with Attorney General Faris Al Rawi concerning the SSA bill.

The members contend that SC Armour and Brooks failed to consult the membership before meeting the AG.

In a release last week from Secretary Elena Araujo, the cirmcumstances surrounding the meeting were explained in detail, stating "the members of the 30th Council confirm that the President and Vice President acted with the full authority of Council when they articulated to the Attorney General, the considered and informed views and concerns of the Law Association on the SSA Bill."

The release also explained that 10 members who signed the petition have since withdrawn from the motion of no confidence.

 

Last week at a press conference the AG said government is dealing with $12 billion of uncollected VAT, a figure which the finance Minister said was incorrect.

Sunday at the annual medical conference Mr Al-Rawi said his comments were taken out of context and said that the figures he gave were given over the span of several years.

The man was spotted at the mouth of the Oropouche River by media crews who were following up reports of a fish kill in the waters off Mosquito Creek.

 

A ray of sunshine beamed today in a community that's been overshadowed by crime as the children of Enterprise Chaguanas were given a helping hand to start the new school term coming in September. 

The Sow a Seed, Reap a Harvest Community Outreach shared hampers and book bags to students entering Primary and Secondary School for the first time come September. 

As Peter Christopher explains, the event was a welcome change of pace for the area.
