News day / Downtown Owners and Merchants Association (DOMA) president Gregory Aboud said on Thursday that several Port-of-Spain business owners wrote letters to the city corporation threatening legal action.
SBA president Daphne Bartlett told Newsday yesterday she fully endorses the move.
We have been saying for years now that we must uphold the law, Bartlett said.
That is why we think everything is spiralling down at this time because what is illegal we are trying to uphold as legal and that should not obtain, absolutely not. Bartlett said many of the vendors on High Street, San Fernando are actually outsiders who are allowed to sell their products illegally. But instead of taking action against them, she said police often target legitimate business owners. When they (police) want to be very vindictive, when they know it is 5 oclock and business people are closing up and they need to transfer things to their car and take out things and whatever, that is the time they come out and give you tickets.
