Rowley wants changes in behaviour
Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley said yesterday there are some "behavioural patterns" in the Laventille community that need to be addressed.
Rowley was speaking to reporters during a visit to Trou Macaque, Laventille, at the scene of yesterday's arson attack which left three children, a woman and an unborn baby dead.
"There is some behavioural problems in this community that needs to be addressed," Rowley said adding that the powers-that- be should no longer be "pussyfooting around" as the minority are causing havoc on the majority of the citizens and the social problems in the community should be looked at.
The fire was deliberately set after a domestic dispute, police said.
"It is not something that you can place blame on the last architect because this building was built over 50 years ago ... the building here would have passed the building codes then," Rowley said.
Rowley said that an investigation should be done at the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) to find out the tenant arrangements in the building as the entire thing was triggered by a "disruptive tenant" and could have been avoided. —JL
