Chinese under attack

He was commenting on the recent murders of Shirui Zhao and Yanli Gu who were shot dead by two gunmen after they drove into the car park of Kosume bar at New Haven Avenue in Marabella on Thursday evening.

Head of the San Fernando Business Association, Daphne Bartlett, also expressed alarm at the murders and was worried about crime against the Chinese.

In a telephone interview, yesterday, Al-Rawi said the entire nation was facing a “serious” issue regarding crime which stemmed from the country’s porous borders.

“There is a serious issue with relation to crime and we have to recognise that with the previously very porous borders (that) we have had to take a very different approach,” he said, “So the lockdown of the borders… it only happened with our government coming into effect and there have been some serious drug interdictions.” “There is also the need to clamp down, which we are dealing with, in relation to casinos and gaming and exposures because many of these businesses are cash businesses and therefore there is an exposure for criminality to go to work, which is why we are progressing with the legislation as quickly as we are,” he said “There are general issues of concern right around,” the AG said.

Al-Rawi noted that the key when dealing with victims of crime was to “really have respect, to provide support and to try and organise the solution.

The solution in this instance is multi-pronged- it is making sure there are regular patrols and policing.

It involves ensuring that persons who run cash businesses like gaming, like the liquor mart, those things are managed by having legitimate bank accounts.” “Legitimate back accounts happen when you have the ability to have your gaming industry regulated so that bank accounts can be opened,” he said.

Meanwhile, police investigators are working on several theories including one which linked the double murder to the killing of Riverside Road, Marabella resident Everton Moses, 35, on Tuesday night.

Moses was shot in the head and abdomen.

Thirty spent shells were recovered on the scene.

Investigators believe the same type of high powered weapons were used given the large number of spent shells which had been recovered at both crime scenes.

Reacting yesterday to a suggestion that the deaths of the two Chinese victims may have been a hit, Minister of National Security Edmund Dillon said, “I am not aware of that.

Bartlett described the murders as “saddening” saying the association could no longer explain why the crime situation was out of control.

“Why is there such a breakdown of law and order in our country,” Bartlett said. “What is the detection rate. We keep asking that over and over. Why is (it) that we cannot increase our detection rate? What is the problem?” “You are seeing a lot of crimes being committed against the Chinese community.

What is going on? We don’t have an explanation,” she said. “It’s a saddening thing that someone could come to live in your country with permission and then somebody kills them for whatever reason.

Why is that? What is really going on? Can anyone explain to us the whole sociological problem we are having also, and I don’t know if people are seeing the Chinese community as coming and overtaking business in Trinidad.

I don’t know, I have no idea.

“We are going to end up being a failed state.

We (are) heading in that direction and we do not want that, Trinidad is too beautiful a country for us to let it go to rack and ruin.”
