The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has launched two investigations into social media posting between Monday and Tuesday of this week, and plans to questions the persons involved.

Speaking at the Weekly Police Media Briefing today, Police Commissioner Gary Griffith said within in the first incident an individual made a video alluding to the fact that he was going “to bury a political leader in a grave and he intends to deal with her.” Griffith said, “we have to be very as to the comments that we make.”

He referred to Section 49 of the Summary Offences Act, violent language and breach of the peace, any person making use of any insulting, annoying or violent language with intent to or which might tend to provoke any other person to commit any breach of the peace, and any person who uses any obscene, indecent or profane language to the annoyance of any resident or person in any street..”

He said with that being said that person will be brought in for questioning.

“I will not going to condone in any form or fashion any individual or organisation that may cause fear or undue panic or make any threatening language or to try to incite violence in any form or fashion during this election campaign.”

Griffith said in the second matter, the other individual stated that there is a source that stated certain officials paid of medical officials big money to inject citizens with the swine flu.

“This is tantamount to madness. That individual we are going to find her and we are going to bring her in for questioning. This madness stops now.

He then advised members of the public to be very careful about the comments that they make.
