No charges yet against Kublalsingh
Six hours after he was arrested and dragged off the demolished camp site, Re-Route Highway Movement leader Dr Wayne Kublalsingh walked out of the San Fernando Police Station. “He is irrational,” Kublalsingh said as he warned the nation not to trust National Security Minister Jack Warner. “I think he is not the man for the job. The people of Trinidad and Tobago need to be really aware of who he really is. I don’t think they know who he really is,” he added.
No criminal charges were laid against Kublalsingh who was arrested during the joint police/army demolition. However, Southern Division Senior Supt David Lewis said police were still consulting with their legal department to determine whether charges would be brought against him.
Emerging from the station around 12.30 pm, in muddy clothing, an unfazed Kublalsingh told reporters the protesters would set up a new camp in an undisclosed location in Port-of-Spain at 8 am today, where their fast and prayer would continue.
“We will stop the Debe to Mon Desir Highway,” he said.
Citing previous accusations by Warner against them, Kublalsingh added; “This is another one of his actions designed to inflict maximum punishment. I think it is a draconian measure.” He accused Warner of using acts of violence against “peaceful people.”
Kublalsingh said Warner alone sanctioned the demolition, saying: “Now that he is in the ministry he has one foot in the Ministry of Works and another foot in National Security, so he has an advantage... so he could call the shots whenever he wants to.” He denied slapping any police officer or running his car into a tractor. “I was struggling to stay on the site and I was dragged and shoved,” he added.
