In todays Trinidad Guardian Carmona to Govt: Deal with crime Deal with it! President Anthony Carmona telegraphed that message yesterday at the funeral of slain senior counsel Dana Seetahal, where he enhanced his plea for the Parliament to genuinely co-operate and engage in realistic bi-partisan methods to address crime. He voiced the appeal, standing near Seetahal’s wooden casket at the Aramalaya Presbyterian Church, Tunapuna. And he placed the plea before the congregation which included Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar and People’s Partnership ministers as well as Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley and People’s National Movement members. The church overflowed with dignitaries, including former president George Maxwell Richards, Chief Justice Ivor Archie, legal, judicial and political luminaries and other personalities who came to pay their respects to late special prosecutor Seetahal. Seetahal, 58, was assassinated early last Sunday morning while en route to her One Woodbrook Place apartment from Ma Pau casino, Ariapita Avenue. She was ambushed by culprits who fired several shots at her, killing her instantly. Up to yesterday’s funeral, four days after, no arrests had been made nor had any concrete leads been divulged by authorities. Carmona’s address climaxed tributes from over 15 people, including a farewell ballad from soca star Machel Montano, a sermon from former Independent Senator Rev Daniel Teelucksingh, prayers from Father Clyde Harvey and Pundit Randhir Maharaj, plus a scripture reading from the Prime Minister.
