President Anthony Carmona says he is deeply concerned with the proliferation of violence and indiscipline in Trinidad and Tobago.

Speaking at the Mediation Board of T&T (MBTT) seventh annual Mediation Symposium yesterday, Carmona lamented that Trinbagonians are not very good at resolving conflict.

He said most of the violence perpetrated in this country is among the adult population and mediation throughout society, including in communities and the school system, would go a long way towards preventing and treating with conflict, which could ultimately save lives.

“If there was the force of mediation in 1912 or in the 1940s, just maybe the two world wars may not have happened. Millions who died may not have died,” Carmona said.
