SAN JUAN – Trinidad and Tobago’s national security minister condemned on Tuesday the recent murders of a soldier and a prison official.
In a statement on the government’s Facebook page, Edmund Dillon expressed concern that officers are apparently being targeted by criminal elements.
Dillon offered condolences to the families of Defense Force Cpl. Shevaun Charleau and Prison Service superintendent David Millette.
Charleau, 39, was fatally shot Friday night in Port-of-Spain.
While the 50-year-old Millette was gunned down Monday morning.
Dillon said law enforcement officials were treating these instances of violence against serving officers seriously.
