Section 34

Opposition leader feels vindicated

In a media statement released by the leader of the opposition, Mrs Kamla Persad Bissesar says that her administration feels vindicated by the ruling of the Privy Council.

She says the swift action of her government to repeal section 34 effectively nullified any unintended consequences and benefits that would have operated to the detriment of the Criminal Justice System. 

Mrs. Persad government came under heavy criticism after Section 34 was proclaimed in Parliament.
