Police killings in Trinidad and Tobago go unpunished, says Amnesty International

Wednesday, April 26, 2006

LONDON, England: In a report published Wednesday, Amnesty International argues that structural reforms within the police forces of Trinidad and Tobago -- including the implementation of a human rights- based Code of Conduct, a transparent chain of command and criminal prosecutions in cases of human rights abuses -- are key to regaining community support, essential for preventing and combating crime in the country.

Amnesty International’s report looks at the issue of police killings and deaths in custody through cases reported since 2003. The report highlights the authorities' failure to conduct investigations and to bring those responsible to justice.
