Trinidad & Tobago: CoP responds to critics, defends seizure of $22M ‘sou sou’ cash

One day after he launched a high-level investigation to determine who decided to return more than $22 million in cash that was seized in La Horquetta from an alleged Pyramid Scheme operator, Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith has sought to defend his actions.

In a Facebook post on Thursday, Griffith noted there are some who are upset over his decision to investigate and retrieve the large sum of money.

He said: “That is your right to do so, but when it reached a point of persons voicing their disgust over the terrible act of a Police Commissioner going above and beyond, to investigate and retrieve $22 million in cash, that cannot be accounted for, and when wrongfully returned without confirmation that all of that cash was given via legitimate and law abiding citizens, I can conclude that the values of many in this country, sum up why we as a nation, have become what we are.”
