Trinidad & Tobago: Court order granted to hold DSS money

An order has been granted for police to legally hold on to the estimated $7 million which was seized on Tuesday by investigators into the Drugs Sou Sou company (DSS).

The order was granted at the Arima Magistrates’ Court under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Loop News was told that the order will give investigators a time period of at least three months to hold the cash while inquiries are ongoing to determine if the funds were legitimate, or if the money could be linked to any criminal activities.

This matter, police said, is receiving the full attention of the police service with Police Commissioner Gary Griffith expecting to help oversee inquiries, which are being spearheaded by Deputy Commissioner of Police McDonald Jacob.
