Kidnappers train their guns at five of the six T&T fishermen who were reportedly abducted and taken to Venezuela. The victims were from left Brandon Arjoon, Jason O’Brian , Jagdesh Jude Jaikaran, Jerry O’Brian , Linton Manohar and missing from photo Ricky Rambharose.
(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — Images circulating on social media purporting to be those of dismembered Morne Diablo fishermen are fake, and should not be shared, says the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS).
A senior police officer told the Express yesterday that those who are posting the images have incited panic among relatives of the kidnapped men, further adding to the stress the families are already experiencing.
The images began circulating over the weekend on social media. What was discovered were graphic images that showed a shirtless man whose limbs were cut off while a Spanish speaker addressed the person.
