Abu Bakr, is he serious? They let him go free for insufficient evidence but then at the same time when he got out he asked who is going to repair his good name? I'm just thinking, what good name? He led the 1990 coup right? Did he get a good name from that? What good name is he talking about?
He was granted permission from the police and did a "Commemorative walk" From the Red House, where Parliament was held in 1990, to the Port of Spain Waterfront, where the Parliament is currently held. He said he wanted to remind the country and the Government to obey the law and that the attempted coup would have been avoided, had the government obeyed the law.
What are your thoughts about his march and statement? Do you think he should be free to do it or do you think is a slap on the face to the victims of the 1990 attempted coup?

Imam Yasin Abu Bakr warned law enforcement that he would take appropriate steps on a matter that involved police arresting some men at a Mosque after their prayers during the Ramadan period. The police said that some of the men were arrested on outstanding warrants while others were suspects in kidnapping cases.
Imam Yasin Abu Bakr went on public radio to talk about what he meant by "Taking appropriate action" In response to a raid on a mosque that ended with everyone arrested being released the next day. Imam Yasin Abu Bakr was not exact with what he meant but he did not mix words about his displeasure of the police and those from the National Security Council. Apparently, many in Trinidad & Tobago are uneasy as the anniversary of the July, 1990 Coup Attempt draws closer.
