Murdered: Allen Mosely

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Social and Welfare Association has offered a $10,000 reward for any information which may lead to the arrests of those responsible for the murder of Police Constable Allen Moseley.

This was announced by the Association President, Inspector Gideon Dickson, during a press briefing at the police administration building in Port of Spain yesterday.

“As it relates to death of one of our own, we offering a $10,000 reward for any person who can pro-vide information to bring perpetrators to justice. Until then, our prayers with Moseley, his family and friends, and the community of Morvant where I once resided,” Dickson said.

Mosely was shot dead on June 27, while visiting a friend along the Morvant Old Road.

Hours before he had finished a four-week training programme at the Guard and Emergency Branch, and was expected to take up duties at this unit on June 29.

He was a father of five.

Moseley’s killers remain on the run.

Hours after his death, three men were killed by police in Morvant, but it has yet to be confirmed if this incident could be directly linked to Mosley’s murder.

Nevertheless, the killing of the three men by police led to five days of protests throughout the coun-try.


IS Barry Padarath in or out?

The People’s National Movement (PNM) is considering mounting a legal challenge to the candidacy of Barry Padarath, the United National Congress (UNC) Princes Town candidate for the 2020 general election.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley yesterday expressed satisfaction with the findings of the pre-election 2020 poll conducted by Nigel Henry which showed the People’s National Movement (PNM) five per cent ahead of its main rival, the United National Congress (UNC).

OPPOSITION Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar and her “minions” in the United National Congress (UNC) have now “stepped over the line” by attacking the father and brother of National Security Minister Stuart Young.

Young said so yesterday at a news conference at the Ministry of National Security in Port of Spain.

Covid-19 has caused a massive shift in what’s uppermost in the minds of citizens, with the pandemic now trumping crime as the major worry.

“Concern over the coronavirus pandemic has overtaken concern over crime, which had previously polled as the most pressing national issue for almost a decade.

AS the number of Covid-19 cases continues to climb daily in Trinidad and Tobago, a staff member and a child at the St Jude’s School for Girls have tested positive for the virus, while the Montrose Government Primary School has been ordered closed after a pupil was exposed to a contact of a Covid-19 case.
