State witness says cops tried to cover up Moruga murders
The details were provided by their former colleague, WPC Nicole Clement, who was initially jointly charged with them for the triple murder but became a state witness.

On Monday, Clement was deemed a hostile witness by High Court Judge Carla Brown-Antoine after she declined to testify due to "safety and security concerns". Her testimony during the preliminary inquiry, in which she claimed two of the friends survived the initial barrage of gunshots on their vehicle but were executed at a second location, was read to the jury.

Browne: Caricom to meet on Gaza/Israel conflict today
He believed Israel had a right to exist as a state and countries had a right to defend themselves. However, he said there was such a thing as excessive self-defence, and with the measures being carried out by Israel, including indiscriminate killing and displacement of Palestinians, Israel risked pivoting from the role of victim to that of oppressor.

Vieira called for the UN to step in and take stewardship of Gaza. He said the conflict did not only threaten security and stability in and around Gaza but, if left unchecked, could escalate into a greater war.

ACCORDING to Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, the Minister of Education, the State's policy on the readmission of expelled students is clear.
