No More “Scratch Bombs” For Trinidad
Trinidad’s Cabinet has decided that with immediate effect to ban the importation of what is commonly called “scratch bombs”.
This was announced by National Security Minister Stuart Young who said that the call for the ban has been going on for some time. Reports of injuries to both children and adults by the scratch bombs strengthened the government’s position.
Additionally, Young said it has become a national nuisance where persons have attacked others using the miniature explosive.
The Security Minister said that if anyone is found with a scratch bomb following the importation ban, it will be regarded as an illegal weapon and police will enforce the law in such regard.
