The Ministry of National Security in a statement said that the reports were “latest attempt to destabilize the smooth operation of the State” and that quoted National Security Minister Gary Griffith as advising the national public “that, at any time now and in future, they should be guided by faith in the mechanisms of National Security and not by panic and rumours”.

Griffith is further advising that the State’s security mechanisms, intelligence gathering and law enforcement response are second to none, “and that while there are no guarantees that the lawless among us might not be tempted to test them, there is every guarantee that they would fail in those endeavours every time.

“The public should rest assured that the combined forces harnessed seamlessly through the National Operations Centre provide a formidable challenge to any and all who might consider any activities of this nature.

“Furthermore, the diligent and hardworking members of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force and all of the other arms of State security stand ready to defend this nation with the highest degree of professionalism, patriotism and training.”

The Ministry of National Security said it was advising the public that “any information pertaining to threats to the State or disruption of public order will be generated from the National Operations Centre in a timely and accurate manner, as all arms and apparatus are working together to ensure the safety and security of all the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago”.
