Today's quote: Justice Carmona on criminals in the URP

"Time and time again a lot of criminal activity is taking place in the bowel of the URP and that is the stark reality...And what is further stark is a generation of young men is dying...

"And for some strange reason, the police now have begun to make what I would refer to as a distinction... Deaths are now being referred to as drug-related or gang-related.

"This is not about a death being gang-related or the death being drug-related, this is about young men dying. And as a nation we have to rise to that reality, and we must not involve ourselves in some kind of social disengagement.

"I can tell you that in the bowels of the URP there is rank criminality and the authorities need to address this."

Justice Anthony Carmona - quoted in the Trinidad Guardian, February 2008 in dismising a case against two accused murderers after State attorney Nalini Singh told the court statements given by the main witnesses at the Magistrates' Court were not admissible. Read the story:
