Following recent public statements made by the current President of The Inter-Religious Organisation of Trinidad and Tobago (IRO), there has been several calls by media practitioners, as well as in social media, for the member organisations of the IRO to express their position on child marriage, and the retention of provisions in current laws that allow for such a practice.

The Presbyterian Church of Trinidad and Tobago wishes to advise the populace that our representative to the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO), the Moderator of the Synod, was not informed of nor invited to the meeting of the IRO at which the decision to support Child Marriage was taken, neither were we consulted for an input afterward. As such, we firmly state that our Church does not hold to views expressed in the subsequent statement issued by the Head of the IRO, Bro Harrypersad Maharaj, in defence of Child Marriage.

Three other religious bodies have distanced themselves from statements made by the Inter Religious Organisation in support of child marriage.

The Children's Authority says Trinidad and Tobago is not a safe place for children and that this needs to change.
