Trinidad government and opposition agree to resume hanging

by Global News Staff

Trinidad — The Trinidad and Tobago government and opposition have united to pass legislation to resume the execution of convicted killers.

Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar and the leader of the opposition, Keith Rowley, agreed to co-operate and have brought forward the date to 18 February for the legislation to go to parliament.

It has been over 10 years since the state has been able to executive a convicted killer.

A BBC Caribbean report stated that a major element is the placing of murders into three categories.

For brutal and very deliberate killings, the death penalty will be the fate for the convicted.

On the lesser charge of manslaughter, those convicted will receive a life sentence, and for involuntary manslaughter, it would be up to the judges to deliver sentences.
