Trinidad: Mitchell-New security arrangements for tourists

Tourists visiting TT can look forward to new measures aimed at ensuring their safety as Tourism Minister Randall Mitchell, National Security Minister Stuart Young and parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of National Security Glenda Jennings-Smith met yesterday at the Ministry of National Security, Abercromby Street, to discuss what could be done to better protect visitors.

According to a release issued by the Ministry of Tourism, the meeting was held at the request of Mitchell in light of Boxing Day’s robbery and assault of 72-year-old British tourist Sally Wilson and her husband Michael.

Mitchell said the meeting agreed that “one robbery was one too many,” and “planning and discussions between the cruise officers at the ministry and the police will continue.” He said that would be done “with a view to eliminating shortcomings or potential shortcomings in the security arrangements.”
