Garcia on 'UWI sex video': No investigation necessary

Education Minister Anthony Garcia says it is not necessary to launch an investigation into a video circulating on social media allegedly depicting two students having sex at a classroom at the Learning Resource Centre at the University of West Indies, St Augustine Campus.

The Minister made the comment while responding to an urgent question in the House of Representatives on Friday, as to whether an investigation will be launched into the video.

“I have seen a video circulating on social media but I cannot ascertain whether that video really depict two persons having sex. I really can’t decide that. It is not necessary to launch any investigation,” the Education Minister responded.

Garcia was further asked if the Education Ministry has liaised with the Cybercrime Unit of the Police Service to determine the authenticity of the video.

“It is unnecessary or unwise for the Ministry of Education to delve further into that

Our business is educating our children, not advocate anything with respect to videos that show any type of behaviour,” the Education Minister said.

According to a Trinidad Guardian, UWI principal Professor Brian Copeland has said they were aware of the incident and were looking into it.
