Immediately upon hearing that the police had stopped part two of a motorcade for retrenched workers, Police Commissioner Gary Griffith assured that full police cooperation will be granted once an application seeking permission is made by the Movement for Social Justice.
In an interview with Guardian Media, Griffith said the Monday motorcade had to be cancelled because proper protocols were not put in place. The motorcade, organised by the MSJ, was supposed to start at 7 am at Paramount headquarters and end in Port-of-Spain.
