Mother of slain teen appeals to witness

Yucklan Sancaro was tearful as she spoke to the media following the National Awards ceremony last night, at the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA), in Port of Spain, where she received the Hummingbird Medal (Bronze), which her son was posthumously awarded for gallantry.
