PNM Member of Parliament for Port-of-Spain North/St. Ann’s West, Stuart Young has described as "disgusting behaviour", the disclosure by the UNC's Oroupuche East MP, Dr Roodal Moonilal of photos showing children with guns.
Dr Moonilal had linked the photos to Attorney General Faris Al Rawi, who did not deny nor confirm that the persons in the photos are his children, when he held a news conference Tuesday to respond.
Speaking in the House of Representatives during the Budget debate on Wednesday morning, Young said the disclosure was "disgusting".

The legislation was brought to the Parliament by the former UNC-regime and supported by the Opposition PNM.
The family of slain police officer, PC Anson Benjamin will have to wait for a review by the Ministry of National Security, before they can know whether they will be compensated by the state.
