The United National Congress Women’s Arm is calling on the Minister of National Security and by extension the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to protect our women, they are currently under attack. There has been thirty eight women murdered as of this date, two of the murders recorded in the last three days is that of Dr Broadbridge who was brutally murdered at her home on Saturday night she was eighty years old and Ramdevi Singh of Chaguanas who was strangled to death in her home, she was seventy five years old.
The Women’s Arm notes that there has been a deafening silence from the Minister of National Security as the crime rate escalates and no measures have been put in place to curb these heinous acts. As such we call once more on those in authority to step up and bring these criminals to task and ensure justice to the families of all victims.
We will continue to advocate for the protection of our women and by extension every citizen of Trinidad and Tobago, as we stand together with the families of the victims and we offer our Welfare and Social Officers to them in their time of grief. We say that our women are under attack and we are calling for action and less talk!
