Trinidad and Tobago disputes UK 'terrorism' travel advisory
Published on August 18, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -- The government of Trinidad and Tobago has expressed concern over recent media reports regarding the United Kingdom’s foreign travel advisory for Trinidad and Tobago and in particular the reference to what is stated under the heading “Terrorism”.

The government has since held talks with the British High Commission in Trinidad and Tobago and was informed that there was no recent update to the advisory and that that language on terrorism was included in May 2017.

The government has registered its concern at the specific language used in the advisory and has confirmed that there is no intelligence and, in particular, no specific intelligence, which provoked the use of this language.

"The government, through the ministry of national security, and in particular the various law enforcement authorities in Trinidad and Tobago, continues to work closely with our international allies, including the British, with respect to counter terrorism and the sharing of intelligence, all aimed at ensuring that our citizens and persons in Trinidad and Tobago are safe.

"Our law enforcement authorities continue to monitor the situation and to work assiduously to keep our citizens and visitors safe against any potential terrorist activity," the ministry of national security said in a statement.
