Trinidad: UNHOLY ALLIANCE Young slams UNC partnership with ‘criminals’

NATIONAL Security Minister Stuart Young yesterday expressed concern as he accused the Opposition UNC of consorting with criminals and reputed crime figures.

Speaking at a press conference at the ministry’s office in Port of Spain, Young said there was a “worrying” development in which members of the opposition were soliciting the support of criminals in order to gain public support in the upcoming general election.

He referred to an incident at a political rally last week, in which UNC deputy political leader Jearlean John reportedly invited a young man to speak at the event. Young described this as an “unholy alliance” between criminals and the UNC and that it was in keeping with that party’s track record.

He referred to the Life Sport programme, in which the former administration hired alleged gang leaders to guarantee votes.
