The Trinidad and Tobago Government has refused to address the issue of sex between two men and flatly rejected a move to allow sexual activity between minors of the same sex. According to the Trinidad Express, a move to amend the “romeo clause” which treats same sex experimentation between children as a crime, while decriminalising that experiment between children of the opposite sex was refused. The Government is set to continue consultations on the matter.
The Police are reporting that it has noticed an alarming increase in the number of crimes, especially murders and robberies being committed by persons and their accomplices driving rented vehicles.
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), has placed Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago on a watch list of countries that have failed to make the adequate copyright payments for U.S. musical compositions aired in the broadcast media.
