Trinidad & Tobago: ‘The Resistance’ due in court on arson charge

A 27-year-old man of Turquoise Drive, Diamond Vale, Diego Martin has been charged with maliciously setting fire to the Ministry of Health head office in Port-of-Spain.

“The Resistance” set fire to the basement floor of CHIC Building, 63 Park Street Port of Spain, which houses the Ministry’s Head Office around 1:30am on August 8.

When firefighters and the police responded to the fire, they saw a message on one of the walls which read, “COVID-19 is all about the New World Order. Stop is now. #THE RESISTENCE.”

An investigation by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Port-of-Spain, with the assistance of other specialised units of the TTPS led to a suspect being detained and released pending further investigations.
