EMA criticized for handling of Brian Lara Stadium event


    The EMA is being criticized for its response to an event held at the Brian Lara Stadium over the weekend.

    There were a number of noise complaints, and the EMA has promised action if is determined that the levels were above the prescribed limits.

    The group Citizens Against Noise Pollution in Trinidad and Tobago pointed to a statement from the EMA, which said that its representatives had asked the organizers to lower their music when it crossed the “prescribed levels”.

    It says this was apparently not done and called on the EMA to explain why the event was not shut down after a warning was made.

    It adds that incidents such as these are a regular occurrence and accused the EMA and TTPS of often trivializing noise complaints.

    CANPTT is now calling for a meeting with the Police Commissioner and the EMA to address the issue.
