Comments: There we go again more lawlessness without any retribution and denials by some officials that it never really was as reported. I am referring to the semi -clad women displaying themselves at the Arouca prison, thus creating more work for the police and the security authorities. I suppose it would have been more entertaining with a bit of pole dancing. Whatever next?.This is another sign of the degrading of our nation and another foot into the abyss.
Comments: It is hard to believe in one of the richest nations in the Caribbean in the year 2017 prisoners of this nation are still using buckets as toilets within their cells. Why has this just come to light? Perhaps too there may be some outside latrines provided in some prisons similar to those still in use in many districts here. It just goes to show that despite our politicians supporting the human rights organization,when in comes to dealing in a humane fashion with respect to our citizens our politicians lack of compassion, caring and observing human rights are thrown out of the window by those who govern this nation. Now in a time of recession and a government struggling to keep their heads above water there is a sudden cry to provide a budget of $55 million dollars to provide flushing water toilet within our prisons. Why didn't our politicians think of this decades ago? . I expect it was again lack of foresight by those supposedly clever local politicians eh. This sort of thing make individuals like me wonder why we keep electing political representatives since our independence who are not really interested in improving the fabric of our nation, but use the Treasury funds as an ATM for their party's own financial benefit in a Mafia style fashion.
Prisons in Trinidad & Tobago Caribbean / Tobago & Trinidad
Title: Closing Port of Spain Prison
Comments: The suggestion of getting the rid of the prison in Port of Spain is a very good suggestion. In this modern times prisoners need to be accommodated as far as possible from build up areas such as Port of Spain. Not only that, the area taken up by the prison is considered prime land and could be sold off and the profit put to a useful purpose .The prison as it stand could be converted in accommodation for the homeless or as I have already said,sold off. Some of the proceeds could be directed towards the Salvation Army to improve their accommodation for the homeless. This is something that our politicians should seriously consider.
