Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith confirmed that much of TT’s criminal activity is the result of government itself funding such criminals.

Griffith was speaking on July 17 at a press conference one day after a shoot out occurred between Muslim and Rasta city gangs.

“It is difficult for the TTPS to go out there and do our jobs when it is the state is funding gang members.”

Said Griffith

Griffith showed that the shootout which occurred last week was the result of a gang fight over a government contract.

The in­for­ma­tion re­ceived and con­firmed that the cause for these shoot­ings was main­ly for Gov­ern­ment con­tracts, one of which is a box drain con­tract.

Griffith said.
