Gary explains his stage appearance

Police Commissioner Gary Griffith spent part of his Easter Monday responding to the criticism over his appearance on stage the previous night at Buju Banton’s I Am Legend concert in Port of Spain.

Griffith said he was invited onstage by Buju Banton and it followed their discussion on Saturday night, where the Commissioner met with Buju “in a bid to clear up any misunderstanding following the search his room by police officers” earlier that day.

“The search of Buju Banton’s room, where nothing was found, was set to cause a major rift between this country and Jamaica. This search occurred as a result of poor procedure by certain officers of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS), hence, the TTPS may have been directly responsible for such a rift” said Griffith in a statement.
