National Security Minister Edmund Dillon says he welcomes the appointment of Dennis Moses as Minister in the Ministry of National Security.

The Ministry of National Security issued this statement this afternoon:

"The Minister of National Security, Major General (Ret’d) the Honourable Edmund Dillon welcomes the appointment of Senator the Honourable Dennis Moses as Minister in the Ministry of National Security.

Speaking from his office in Port of Spain, Minister Dillon stated that he was eager to begin a closer working relationship with Minister Moses, who possesses a wealth of experience in the field of International Relations and Diplomacy.

Minister Dillon reminded that over the past decade, there have been significant changes in the way Trinidad and Tobago approaches the issues of crime and national security as a result of events on a global scale. He said this change is also underpinned by a growing realization that increasing levels of cooperation between this country and Regional and International Partners have had a significant impact on our national interests.

Minister Dillon stated, “Additionally, Trinidad and Tobago is signatory to almost all of the major international treaties and conventions aimed at addressing transnational organized crime. In this regard, the appointment of Senator the Honourable Dennis Moses to the Ministry of National Security will assist greatly with issues relating to Migration, including but not limited to the CARICOM Single Market and Economy, Border Security, as well as Immigration and Transnational Organized Crime, particularly with respect to Counter Terrorism and Human Trafficking.”

Senator Moses also holds the portfolio for Minister of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs. Minister Moses is fluent in French and Spanish.

The Staff at the Ministry of National Security would like to wish Minister Moses a very productive tenure at the Ministry of National Security."
