Former Justice Minister Herbert Volney has got himself into a war of nasty words with the Public Relations Officer of the Tobago Organization of the People, Joseph Frederick.
A post was made by a member of the media last night stating that police were warning members of the TOP to desist from disrupting a meeting held by Minister of Tobago Development Dr. Delmon Baker in Bethel last night.
Among those commenting on the post was Herbert Volney who called the TOP an obsolete party.
TOP's PRO responded by telling the former Minister he would know what obsolete means since he is no longer a minister.
Minister Volney fired back using expletives.
This resulted in comments from people who were surprised at the posts of the former Minister and PP member which prompted the Mr. Volney to retaliate with further expletives.
TOP leader Ashworth Jack declined to comment on the matter.
Legal Affairs Minister and Congress of the People Leader Prakash Ramadhar believes that one cannot automatically point the finger of guilt at the Prime Minister over the alleged marijuana find on the premises of her official residence two years ago.
Mr. Ramadhar spoke with the media when he attended World Yoga Day celebrations at UWI's St Augustine campus today.
Mr. Ramadhar is convinced that ILP Leader, Jack Warner, who made the allegations, is simply on a mission to destroy, and said it's up to the citizens to decide what they will believe, given the track record of the Prime Minister in delivering to the people.
On another note, Mr. Ramadhar addressed the turbulence that occurred between warring union bodies on Labour Day.
Five people have lost their lives in three separate vehicular crashes this morning.
The latest incident occurred after 8 o' clock on Sunday in Barataria, where two men were killed.
Reports are that this silver Lancer was heading east along 5th street in Barataria and made an illegal left turn at the intersection.
It was where two road signs indicating what's illegal are posted.
That proved to be a fatal mistake, when a car travelling along the Priority Bus Route also got the green light and rammed into the Lancer.
Two male occupants of the lancer died on the spot.
Firemen had to cut the vehicles to free the occupants.
Heavy rains on Sunday morning hampered the efforts of the rescuers, as two hours following the incident they were still on the scene.
Senior Superintendent Mathura Singh called on drivers to be careful in rainy weather.
He also called on drivers to have a designated driver when drinking.
In an unrelated incident, just after midnight, two other men were killed in Sangre Grande.
Reports say a car driven by 29 year old Easlom Lankim was proceeding south along the Toco Main Road in the vicinity of the 1 mile mark, when he lost control and his car, ran off the western side of the road into a yard, and collided with three parked cars.
Kyle Sorzano, 21, and Keston Thomas, passengers in the vehicle, died at the scene.
Mr. Lankim sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile in Valencia, just before 5am Sunday morning, Sherwin Charles and Gisselle Friday were in a silver Tiida heading east along the Valencia Stretch when Ms. Friday overtook a line of traffic and collided head on with an oncoming truck.
She survived, but Charles who was in the front passenger seat died on the scene.
