Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith is urging members of the public to call him at 482-GARY and let him know who has illegal firearms.

Griffith said now that the Firearms Amendment Bill has been passed, the police can begin the operational aspect of the legislation.

“What has to happen is the operational aspect where members of the public come forward and they can use 482-GARY and provide information on who has guns, so that the guns can be gotten off the streets,” said Griffith.


Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has revamped the United National Congress (UNC) team, letting go ten current MPs and replacing them with new faces to contest the August 10 general election.

“Thank you very much and goodbye.”

This is essentially what outgoing D’Abadie/O’Meara MP Ancil Antoine was told by the People’s National Movement (PNM) leadership yesterday.

Antoine was summarily removed as the party’s candidate for the 2020 general election following his “insensitive and objectionable statements” at a campaign meeting on Saturday.
