In April 2013, a member of Special Branch discovered five grams of marijuana on the premises of former prime minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar. According to the laws of Trinidad and Tobago, everyone present should have been arrested, questioned and charged. Former Ministers Jack Warner, Roodal Moonilal and Gary Griffith, as well as former Deputy Commissioner of Police Mervyn Richardson have all been implicated in an attempt to cover up this crime, by failing to report the discovery of an illegal substance. Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams has received confirmation from the head of Special Branch that the incident did occur and he promised to investigate the matter. We are calling for Jack Warner, Roodal Moonilal and Gary Griffith and former Deputy Commissioner of Police Mervyn Richardson to be charged with perverting the course of justice. No one should be arrested for possessing ganja - but if the police insist on arresting and charging poor people in T&T for ganja, then they must also arrest and charge the rich and the powerful when they commit crimes. Former members of the Cabinet of Trinidad and Tobago and a senior police officer conspired to conceal a crime for which thousands are arrested every year - with no mercy from the cops. No one is above the law, and that includes the police.
