Page 6 Tobago and Trinidad Terrorism
Title: Abu Bakr
Comments: There is obviously no strict control of the lawlessness that exist here with regards to certain citizens who display defiance and disrespect for out Justice system. Where else in the would a notorious criminal, a citizens who have committed the criminal act of treason now facing a judge in an alleged other criminal charge be allowed to walk out of the court and at the same time accusing the judge of being biased. This sort of behavior sends a clear message to other lawless individuals here that you can do such a defiant and disgraceful act and get away with it. Then believe it or not,the culprit allowed to return to the court after a few hours to face the judge again. Just unbelievable in a democracy.This is completely ridiculous. Abu Bakr has shown no fear or respect for the judge or our legal procedures here. The failure of our politicians and members of our justice system to deal with this citizen in a correct lawful manner and avoid him paying the known retribution for the act of treason committed in 1990 sent a clear signal then, to many potential criminals that maybe they too could get away with acts of criminality, which have no doubt played a part in our expansion of crime by citizens here of his racial group and back ground since that event. This acclaimed leader of our so called Muslim movement which is now co linked to local terrorists is at it again, showing his followers how arrogant and brass faced he is when dealing with our judiciary. Yes setting another bad example, which is most likely to adapted by his supporters in the future. Abu Bakr should have been immediately arrested and charged with the offense of contempt of court thus added another offense to the list of his criminal activities. If the politicians, the police and our justice system want to see a fall in our lawlessness and general crime, they must enforce the correct law and order in case such as this. In my opinion the turning of a blind eye to this incident by the politicians, the police and the judiciary encourages more crimes and lawlessness on this island. Those in the corridors of power here,members of the justice system and the police must demonstrate clearly to the rogue elements within our society who is in control by taking the necessary actions to stem the flow of our crime and escalating lawless behavior .
