Port-of Spain, Nov 25(ANI): Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has said police have foiled a plot to assassinate her, and arrested 12 people,including cabinet members.
Persad-Bissessar denounced the alleged conspiracy to assassinate her as "an evil, devious act of treason", the BBC reports.
She said the alleged plot was a handiwork of "criminal elements", who were acting in "reprisal" for a state of emergency she had declared in August.
She had earlier declared emergency to counter drug rackets' increasing violence across the country.
She, however, said she was not surprised when she learnt about the plot, and vowed to continue targetting crime in the country.
She said the Trinidadian Government has controlled the situation, and the security forces have been put on full alert.
Police have released sparse details of the plot, since the probe into the plot is underway.(ANI)
