“Am I a scapegoat?”
This was the question asked by Kerron ‘Preeze’ Clarke, founder of Drugs Sou-Sou (DSS), during a conference that was live-streamed on Instagram on Wednesday evening.
Flanked by two of his attorneys, Clarke spoke about recent investigations into his so-called business operations, including four raids.
During the 11-minute video, he claimed Police Commissioner Gary Griffith has been seeking to root out rogue elements who may have been participating in the scheme through illicit means. However, he now believes he has been collateral damage in a witch hunt.
“The police are now looking away from officers who stole money and pushed it in their uniform and are less interested in rogue cops and more interested in me. Am I being a scapegoat for a bigger interest at play?”
Clarke also responded to news reports by the Trinidad and Tobago Guardian published today titled “Griffith: DSS owner wanted asylum, immunity”. He said this was not the case.
