BY the end of the week, those involved in the zesser party that was stopped by police in Kelly Village, Caroni, on Sunday will receive their summons.
And they are being warned that if they do not attend their virtual court meetings, they can be arrested.
A release by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) stated that the Central Division began compiling information on Wednesday and requesting summons for the persons held.
Investigations were continuing following the detention of over 250 people at the zesser party held in Kelly Village, last Sunday morning for breach of the Public Health Ordinance Regulations.
Head of the Central Division Senior Supt Curt Simon is informing persons who have been charged that the onus will be upon them to attend court virtually on the date stipulated on the summons.
Persons can contact the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court, the Court and Process Office, Chaguanas, or their attorneys for the virtual links.
Simon warned, “In the event that defendants do not attend court, the investigators in the matter will be seeking to obtain warrants for their arrests to have them brought before the court.”
He also emphasised that Central Division police officers were in the business of maintaining law and order, crime prevention, and the reduction and elimination of disorder.
Central Division Police along with other units of the TTPS, including Special Operations Response Team (SORT), the Multi-Operational Police Section(MOPS), and the Anti-Gang Unit were involved in the exercise.
