Port of Spain, Trinidad: Sunday, February 27, 2022: The National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago (NCC) has taken careful note of certain posts trending recently on social media, claiming that the NCC has given permission to one Neil “Iwer” George to stage a street parade of sorts at the end of his concert, scheduled for Monday February 28th, at the Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah.
The NCC wishes to state categorically that it has given no such permission to Mr. George, or to anyone else for that matter, as to do so would constitute a direct, gross and egregious violation of the Government’s official directive and Public Health COVID-19 guidelines.
To be clear, no such parade has been authorized by the NCC, nor will any such parade be allowed to take place on, or originate from the Commission’s premises.
Furthermore, the Commission seeks to make it clear to all members of the public that any attempt to organise, stage or facilitate such a parade anywhere in Trinidad and Tobago, will of course result in the immediate mobilisation of the relevant detachments of our Nation’s protective services, with a view to ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and protocols.
The NCC is urging all members of the public to be particularly mindful of this notice and vigilant in their support, as we continue to follow the advice set out by the Government and our Public Health officials, and act responsibly in curbing the spread of COVID-19.
The NCC thanks the public for its cooperation.
