BETTER POLICE LEADERSHIP NEEDED

Last Updated on 24.03.2015 Attorney at Law Martin George has called for effective leadership in the Police Service following Monday's 'day of policing' which led to massive traffic gridlocks throughout both islands. Mr. George said while the police action caused "tremendous inconvenience," the officers have issues they have been negotiating for, for some time, but this should not have impacted citizens in the way it did. He said while it may not have necessarily been the best way to approach their problem, the action showed deficiencies in leadership in the Police Service. "We the ordinary citizen, we are not the ones who have stalled...

ATTORNEYS AGREE: ILP MOTION ON CONSTITUTION AMENDMENT BILL PREMATURE

The Constitution Amendment Bill, 2014 continues to draw some mixed reviews and Justice Frank Seepersad's ruling on Monday, in favour of the State against ILP members at the High Court, has opened up new discussions. Speaking on Good Morning T&T on Tuesday, Attorneys Wayne Sturge and Martin George are of the view that the ILP is threatened by changes to the country's Constitution. Mr. George said while the ILP's decision to challenge the Bill might have been premature because the legislation is not yet law, it is possible that the party felt threatened by the Run-off provision. "One can understand the anxiety which...

Following a Pre-Action Protocol issued to a radio talk show host, Attorney Martin George says defamation occurs when a person's character is lowered in the esteem of others and with the increase in the use of the internet to communicate to a wide audience, the law has been adjusted to include redress for persons tainted by comments made via the World Wide Web. Communication issued last week from the Office of the President alleged that certain offensive comments made by the radio talk show host threatened to "bring members of the family of His Excellency the President and by extension the...

AMEND LAW FOR DOCTORS TO REPORT QUESTIONABLE MEDICAL MATTERS

Attorney at Law Martin George says amendments need to be made to the law that governs doctor/patient confidentiality. Commenting on the cocaine surgery matter, he said doctors are aware of unlawful offences taking place and they should be mandated to report them. "We might need to look at amending the law to make a requirement, a mandatory legal requirement, for doctors to report because at present, what you have really is basically a moral and ethical responsibility under the terms of the Hippocratic Oath." Meanwhile Medical Practitioner Dr. Rai Ragbir said ignorance of the law is not an excuse. "As a physician, whether it...

ATTORNEY: POLICE OFFICERS’ ACTION UNWARRANTED ON WRECKING

Attorney Martin George says the actions of police officers to pull a woman out of her vehicle, as it was being wrecked on Charlotte Street in Port of Spain, were unnecessary and the woman should have been allowed to move her vehicle.

Speaking with C News on Wednesday, Mr. George said while working with the wrecker, officers are not carrying...

POLICE OFFICERS NEED TO SET BETTER EXAMPLES

Member of the Police Service Commission Attorney Martin George feels the Acting Commissioner of Police will send a very good message to the nation if and when ACP Peter Reyes is officially charged for allegedly breaching airline regulations while on board a CAL flight last month. Speaking on Good Morning Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday, Mr. George said it is important that action against rogue officers is taken. "If the police officers are not setting the example, then obviously he needs to do these things to ensure that the public feels that police officers are not going to be off on a...
