Equal Opportunity Commission hosts public seminar in Tobago

The Equal Opportunity Commission (EOC) in keeping with its mandate to assess the working of the Equal Opportunity Act (the Act) hosted a Public Seminar in Tobago, last Thursday at the Lecture Theatre, Conference Centre, Division of Infrastructure and Public Utilities.
The EOC panel included Chairman, Emeritus Professor John La Guerre, Head Legal Haran Ramkaransingh, Legal Officer I Ms. Aleyya Gafoor and Investigating Officer Georgia-Rae Mottley. They presented on the topic titled: “The investigative process; gathering of evidence; time factors involved and the issues surrounding statuses as covered by the Act”,
The event’s aims were to sensitise, raise awareness of and encourage public discussion on issues of equal opportunity as well as to deepen the general public’s understanding of the work of the Commission.
The event also continues to form part of their public education programme and also presents information on the purpose and scope of the Commission as well as procedures used to investigate matters.
The primary task of the Equal Opportunity Commission (EOC) is to oversee implementation of the Equal Opportunity Act No. 69 of 2000, which prohibits certain kinds of discrimination and seeks to promote equal opportunity among all citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.

Praise God. I am happy that Barrington Thomas, who is a very disrespectful individual and killer of old people was left out of the (EOC)panel.He is a great braggart,a no good and he has no decorum. Do not let him represent Tobago in anything.Don't you see how his TOP financiers are like headless chickens. God don't sleep. Hochoy Charles had said TOP dead for good.
