CRIME WATCH talk show host Ian Alleyne was last evening fired from World Indian Network (Win TV) by the company's management.
Alleyne, who cried during a brief telephone interview with the Express last evening, confirmed his dismissal, saying he believed it was politically motivated.
He said the company's Chairman, Mohan Jaikaran, handed him a dismissal letter saying that his services were no longer required.
Alleyne, who is also the President of the Trinidad and Tobago Crime Watch, shot into the spotlight a few years ago with the Crime Watch programme in which he investigated hundreds of matters and assisted the police in the arrest of suspects.
He was also involved in the seizure of narcotics and illegal arms and ammunition throughout the country.
