Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moo­nilal is calling on National Security Minister Stuart Young to “stop playing riot police” at the migrant registration centres. Moonilal said it was clear that Government had lost control of the Venezuelan registration process.

In a statement yesterday, Moo­nilal said the “awful sight of Minis­ter of National Security Stuart Young playing riot police is the final confirmation that the inept PNM (People’s National Movement) Go­vernment has lost control of the ill-conceived and ill-advised Venezuelan registration policy”.
