The president of the Prisons Association, Ceron Richards, has been suspended from the Prisons Service pending an investigation.

Richards was handed his letter of suspension earlier today in Port-of-Spain and was informed that the disciplinary action was taken as a result of a robbery earlier this year during which his firearm was is said to have been stolen.

Richards says the action taken by the Prisons Commissioner, appears to him as a case of victimization.

He says he will be speaking to his attorneys about his legal options.
