The informer who supplied former People’s Partnership minister Devant Maharaj with a voice recording which allegedly features a conversation between Minister of Rural Development and Local Government Kazim Hosein and colleague La Brea MP Nicole Ollivierre, over the award of Community-Based Environmental Protection and Enhancement Programme (Cepep) contracts, has gone into hiding after allegedly being threatened for leaking the clip.
One rifle, hidden in a bushy area, is found by officers of the InterAgency Task Force Strike Team, during an anti-crime exercise in the Laventille district.
The exercise, spearheaded by Snr. Supt. (Ag.) Simbonath Rajkumar, took place between 2:30am and 6:00am on Tuesday 10th July, 2018.
Around 4:00am, officers proceeded to a bushy area at Straker Village, Picton Road, Laventille, where a search was conducted.

Gopie says; "This is when the recreation ground owners and the local council at Soledad Road Claxton Bay have no regards for the residents living across from the playground. They would clean around the ground and leave all the garbage that is left against the fence. All they need to do is trim the trees and clean up after there is an event and don't discriminate against people who speak up."

Former Justice Minister Herbert Volney has taken to his personal Facebook page to represent CEPEP workers in his community.
Volney, who was a High Court judge before becoming a minister, compares the salaries of the CEPEP workers to that of a judge.
Volney posted the following on Facebook:
"Hey friends. It's the end of another week and today I wear the CEPEP colours as I've been very close to this group of workers in the constituency of St Joseph.
Today is Friday at the end of our fortnight.
The Minister of Local Government says information coming from his Permanent Secretary explains that the funds were received by the Ministry last Friday.
The Ministry says the funds will be processed today and that the cheque will be given to CEPEP on Tuesday.
The Ministry says this will allow payment to take place on or before this Friday.
