Prisons Association president suspended from Prisons Service

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.
