The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is rushing to the defence of a woman accused of child abuse after she was filmed by passers-by supervising a child picking up rubbish in the rain.
By all accounts, the woman in the video was identified as a staff member at a children’s home in East Trinidad.
The video, which the TTPS believes was shared on social media on November 1, has drawn widespread condemnation from viewers. Some even expressed their belief that this was the reason some children ran away from these institutions.
In a press release on Monday, the TTPS said it determined that there was no criminal activity being conducted by the woman in the video after a “thorough” investigation by the Eastern Division Child Protection Unit.
