Family of fisherman slams Ministry apology

The National Security Ministry yesterday apologised to the family of Shazard Mohammed, for issuing a weekend press release reporting that the young fisherman had been killed by Coast Guard officers.

Up to late yesterday, he was still critical at the Intensive Care Unit of the Port of Spain General Hospital.

However, his family has rejected the apology. They also want the ministry to retract the claim that Mohammed was shot because he tried to ram the Coast Guard patrol boat while trying to get away.
