No lit joints, no lap dances and no Sex Island Party on T&T shores this weekend

National Security Minister Stuart Young is responding to international media reports that a sex party is going to be hosted later this month on an island off Trinidad.

In a statement, Young said he has seen the reports of a suggestion that there is to be some event taking place at an island off of the North of Trinidad, carded as a ‘Sex Island Party’.

“I have asked law enforcement and Immigration to monitor this and to make it known that such an event and the suggested illegal actions to take place will NOT be tolerated by Trinidad and Tobago.

The suggested illegality of drug use and prostitution is of concern to me and I have requested that positive action be taken to ascertain whether there is any veracity to the suggested event and to be extra vigilant to prevent any such event taking place.”

Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith, speaking on a local radio programme today, said he wanted to disappoint “those who think it may happen.”

“It is definitely not going to happen, there is no such plan whatsoever that can actually ensure that it takes place,” Griffith said, telling his audience “there is no private island of Trinidad and Tobago.”

Griffith said he believes the event being promised here started some years ago in Colombia “but it is difficult if not impossible for this to take place.”

“Even before the police get involved you need the requisite approval for entry into Trinidad and Tobago waters from the Ministry of National Security and you must go through Immigration authorities. And then having said that …I can give the assurance that before the first joint is lighted, before the first lap dance is made that will never happen.  There’s cer­tain­ly no way that some­thing so or­gan­ised and pro­mot­ed like this can take place in T&T wa­ters.”

Un­der­cov­er po­lice of­fi­cers who have been dis­patched to “every cor­ner” of T&T to mon­i­tor il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties such as pros­ti­tu­tion and hu­man traf­fick­ing, will now fo­cus their at­ten­tion on the Sex Is­land event be­ing pro­mot­ed by a for­eign com­pa­ny for Down the Is­lands this week­end.

This was dis­closed by the Com­mis­sion­er of Po­lice (CoP) Gary Grif­fith on CNC3’s The Morn­ing Brew today, as he dis­cussed a New York Post ar­ti­cle that iden­ti­fied T&T as its new lo­ca­tion for the in­fa­mous “Sex Is­land” all-in­clu­sive par­ty.

Ac­cord­ing to NY Post jour­nal­ist Michael Blaustein, the event is be­ing ad­ver­tised for US$4,500 this Fri­day to Sun­day (De­cem­ber 17). The pro­mot­ers are promis­ing 50 guests two pros­ti­tutes each, drugs and un­lim­it­ed food and drinks, with most of the women com­ing from Colom­bia, Brazil, Puer­to Ri­co, Amer­i­can, Cana­da and oth­er South Amer­i­can coun­tries.

Not­ing that such ac­tiv­i­ty was il­le­gal, Grif­fith said that the of­fi­cers, who had al­ready al­so been as­signed to mon­i­tor es­tab­lish­ments where mi­nors are sold al­co­hol and cig­a­rettes, will be on high alert to en­sure the event does not go on as planned if the re­port is true.

Na­tion­al Se­cu­ri­ty Min­is­ter Stu­art Young al­so said he in­tends to block the or­gan­is­ers of a four-day, three-night “sex ex­trav­a­gan­za.”

The event al­so hit the British new me­dia Tues­day, with the On­line Mail re­port­ing that the or­gan­is­ers had an­nounced that a 16-year-old boy from New York had won a free tick­et to the event and was trav­el­ling to T&T to at­tend af­ter get­ting his fa­ther’s bless­ing.
