Court rules in favour of the Children’s Authority

Date: 2017-07-28

The claim filed by former Attorney General Anand Ramlogan S.C. against the Children’s Authority of Trinidad and Tobago, alleging that a child is being accommodated in circumstances that amount to solitary confinement, cruel and unusual punishment, and in breach of the child’s constitutional rights, was dismissed yesterday (July 26th, 2017) by Justice Vasheist Kokaram in the Civil High Court.

The Court determined it is satisfied that the welfare of the child has been met, since the child has been in the Authority’s care.

The Authority assures the public that it will continue to work in the best interest of children.
