Imbert criticises 1 a.m. police wreckings

Diego Martin North East MP yesterday criticised the wrecking of cars at midnight and one o'clock in the morning in the Woodbrook area.

Speaking during debate on the Finance Bill in the House of Representatives, Tower D, Waterfront Centre, Port of Spain, yesterday Colm Imbert said this is something that needs to be looked at.

"People gone down on Arapita Avenue to have a little drink and they turn around twice and their car gone. One o'clock in the morning, Mr Speaker! What traffic jam would you have at one o'clock in the morning?"

Government MPs told Imbert that he should ask Port of Spain Mayor Louis Lee Sing.

"I understand the exuberance of the police. But what yuh doing at one o'clock in the morning wrecking a car on Arapita Avenue that ain't troubling anybody," he said.

"Making money for the wrecker," Health Minister Fuad Khan shouted.
