WATCH: Government Agrees To Allow Use Of Pepper Spray, Faris Says Legislation Coming

By Newsroom

Legislation to permit the use of pepper spray as a safety tool will soon come before the Parliament for debate, in order to give the vulnerable in society a “fighting chance” at safety against criminal elements.

The decision comes after the National Security Council- which is chaired by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley- accepted recommendations for the regulated use of pepper spray as a crime deterrent. 

The announcement was made by Attorney General Faris Al Rawi during Thursday night’s PNM meeting in Belmont.
