Trinidad: 1,000 went to a cricket match in Central: Cops did nothing, says Gary

Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, has ordered that an investigation be conducted into a report that police officers stood still and did nothing and allowed more than 1,000 spectators to witness a cricket match in Central Trinidad last Wednesday evening, thereby breaching the Public Health Ordinance Regulations guidelines.

The CoP noted that it was only when he gave instructions for the match to be shut down, that the police officers on the scene made any attempt to disperse the crowd which had assembled. The large crowd breached the COVID-19 protocols and caused a traffic nightmare along Pierre Road, Charlieville.

He noted that disciplinary action can follow if the investigation shows that police officers did not carry out their duties.
