Trinidad: Top Cop defends decision to appear on Buju’s stage

Po­lice Com­mis­sion­er Gary Grif­fith yesterday de­fend­ed his de­ci­sion to ap­pear on stage dur­ing Bu­ju Ban­ton’s “I am Leg­end” con­cert, stat­ing if he had not done so, it would have re­sult­ed in a strained re­la­tion­ship be­tween T&T and Ja­maica.

Grif­fith’s com­ments came hours af­ter he was crit­i­cised on so­cial me­dia for ap­pear­ing at Ban­ton’s concert at the Queen’s Park Sa­van­nah, Port-of-Spain, stat­ing that he was just look­ing for fame and to score points.

Grif­fith, how­ev­er, in a What­sApp mes­sage to the me­dia yesterday, in­sist­ed that it was Ban­ton who request­ed him on stage.

He crit­i­cised his de­trac­tors, whom he de­scribed as im­ma­ture and ig­no­rant, in­sist­ing that he would not please in­di­vid­u­als who are jeal­ous or have tun­nel vi­sion, but rather those who are pa­tri­ot­ic, pos­sess humil­i­ty and re­spon­si­bil­i­ty and would put coun­try first.
