The Opposition in Trinidad and Tobago is willing to work with the Government to make Trinidad and Tobago safe again.

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar by letter dated January 10 wrote to Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley requesting a meeting to discuss a bi-partisan approach to the legislative agenda to fight crime, and specifically, to see the early return of the controversial Anti-Gang Bill.

According to the Trinidad Express, Persad-Bissessar said the country has experienced an unprecedented level of criminal activity with 494 murders in 2017 and 23 in 2018 up to yesterday.

Persad-Bissessar in the letter also proposed a revisiting of the Anti-Terrorism Act bill which had lapsed when the Parliament was prorogued last September.
