Report: Children in Container Hoax Causes Port to Close

March 4, 2009 By: Joe Pike


The Trinidad and Tobago Guardian reported that there was a complete shutdown of the Port-of-Spain Port Monday, prompted by a nasty rumor that a container with missing children had been discovered.

According to the story, scores of police officers, together with Customs, Excise and Port Authority police, swooped down on the port in response to radio and television reports, closing all gates and temporarily stopping all business transactions. There was a report that the container with the children was about to be shipped out of the country. All the rumors were quickly dispelled when acting Police Commissioner James Philbert got into the act.

Philbert, in a media release, said, “After a thorough check of the Port of Port-of-Spain by police officers, Port police and officers of the Customs and Excise Division, the allegations are just rumors.”
