By LAUREL V WILLIAMS Tuesday, May 20 2014
ANGERED over the decision given last Friday by a Chaguanas Magistrate to auction off five boats belonging to oyster venders who were fined for being found in a legally protected area of the Caroni swamp, several vendors yesterday staged a protest at the Lakhan Karriah Cremation site in Cacandee Road, Felicity.
The protesters demanded that the boats together with respective engines should not be auctioned off but returned to its owners. Last Friday, Chaguanas Magistrate Brambhanan Dubay fined six oyster vendors $36,000 for entering a prohibited area namely the Caroni Forest Reserve.
