Thousands of people took to the streets yesterday demanding the resignation of that Attorney General Anand Ramlogan and National Security Minister Austin ?Jack? Warner as the fall out continues from the early proclamation of legislation that critics say was intended to ensure the freedom of two financiers of the coalition People?s Partnership government.
A police helicopter hovered overhead and there was a strong show of armed police along the route taken by the protestors.
The protest action had been organised by the Joint Trade Union Movement (JTUM).
Parliament last month repealed Section 34 of the Administration of Justice (Indictable Proceedings) Act that that had the effect of allowing people, whose trial has not started after a 10-year period to walk free and a verdict of not guilty entered against their names.
