Williams: I wasn’t invited to meet with gangs
Acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams says he was not invited to or aware of any meeting with gang leaders in Laventille on Tuesday evening. Williams, in a telephone interview yesterday, said he was not a party to Tuesday night’s meeting with gang leaders at St Paul’s Street Multi-purpose Facility, East Dry River, Port-of-Spain. On Wednesday, National Security Minister Jack Warner told reporters he had been invited to the meeting and while he did not attend, a representative from his ministry was sent. Williams declined yesterday to comment on Warner’s statement. However, he said: “I was not in any meeting with any gang member. I was not aware of it other than what I saw on the news flash. I was not in any meeting, no arrangement was made with me.” Williams said he could only speak of what he was doing yesterday which was dealing with flooding caused by yesterday’s heavy downpour. He also said no murders were recorded on Wednesday night which he attributed to a high police presence. There were four murders earlier that day—one in San Fernando and three in Laventille and Morvant.
