Trinidad: Police raid newspaper

Police in Trinidad raided the daily newspaper Newsday on 9 February and searched the home of one of its journalists, seizing three computers and two mobile phones belonging to him. Andre Bagoo has refused to reveal his sources or hand over material relating to a report published by the paper in December about an alleged conflict within the country’s integrity commission, an independent body that oversees the ethical practices of those in public life. Bagoo and the paper argue the story is of major public interest.
