by Rhondor Dowlat (Trinidad Guardian) The Office of the Attorney General has appealed the injunction granted to former commissioner of police Gary Griffith by a High Court.
The injunction was granted yesterday by Justice Devindra Rampersad preventing the Prime Minister from bringing the Firearm Users Licenses (FUL) audit report before the Parliament.
Rampersad ruled that the prime minister cannot lay the executive summary of the Firearm Audit Report in the Parliament.
In mid-July at a press conference, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley said the findings of the report were disturbing and he had sent a copy to the Police Service Commission.
He announced that he intended to lay the executive summary of the report in Parliament. The report details the activity which took place in the Firearms Unit of the T&T Police Service under the tenure of former commissioner of police Gary Griffith.
Leaked reports to the media suggested under Griffith’s tenure, over 140,000 Firearm Users Licenses were granted.
