State of Emergency And Curfew Aid In Crime Fight

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad — Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar said the state of emergency (SoE) and the curfew (11 pm – 4 am) implemented in several areas of Trinidad will remain in place, until so advised by the security agencies.

Speaking at a post Cabinet press conference on Thursday, she said the members of the security agencies spent several hours on Thursday addressing Cabinet.

She said both measures, instituted on August 21, 2011, will be constantly reviewed. The three month SoE will officially end on December 5, 2011.

The prime minister said the security agencies have said the SoE and the curfew have been “valuable tools in the fight of crime”. She said the agencies were putting measures in place to deal with crime after the SoE.
