Letter

PEP protests outside the Red House

On the first day of the reopening of Parliament at the Red House, members of the Progressive Empowerment Party (PEP) gathered outside the Red House to deliver a letter to the Prime Minister.

In the letter, the political party requested an enquiry into the activities of UDECOTT and an audit of the terms of the contracts awarded to the Corporation for the renovation of the President’s House, the President’s Cottage, the Red House and White Hall.

Dressed in orange the members started by singing the National Anthem.  They also conducted their walk gagged and silent.

Lost World War II love letter addressed to Port-of-Spain finally delivered, 72-years later

Seventy-two years ago, a love letter that was meant to be delivered to a sailor based in Trinidad got lost.

It has now been delivered to the rightful owner.

The letter, postmarked May 1945, was written by a woman named Virginia to her husband, Rolf Christoffersen, who was a sailor at the time in the Norwegian Navy based in Chaguaramas, Trinidad and Tobago.

Melissa Fahy and her father found the letter in a gap under the stairs while renovating her Westfield, New Jersey home.
