(DA Vibes): PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, – Security Minister Austin “Jack” Warner has confirmed that Opposition People’s National Movement (PNM) leader Dr Keith Rowley, who is also the Member of Parliament for Diego Martin West, has received a death threat from unknown persons.

Speaking at a community meeting in Trou Macaque, Laventille, on Tuesday, Warner said he was advised that Dr Rowley had “recently received a threat against his life”, which police are actively investigating.

“I am advised today that the Opposition Leader has got a death threat. I have been so advised. And while that is not in the remit of the Ministry of National Security nor of course is it within my immediate jurisdiction, I can say that the police are investigating the matter closely and they will deal with it,” Warner said.

Warner went on to advise that as a Member of Parliament, such threats ought not to deter any MP from doing his or her national duties.

“The Opposition Leader has gotten a death threat, the Attorney General (Anand Ramlogan) has gotten several death threats and I myself have received several. But I tell you today, as far as I am concerned these death threats will not cower us.
