Nah bro is all camo, if you meet a gladman customs officer they'll seize anything regardless of camo pattern, same if you meet certain police officers. Dunno about the gaming controller but I won't put anything past dem fellas when the vaps hit themVII wrote:Duane 3NE 2NR wrote:What about camouflage game controllers?

From my experiences it's only green camo that's illegal here,even in other Caribbean Islands,got braced by police in Bim for wearing a camo arm-less and had Bob Marley T-Shirt and surrender the camo vest at a concert entrance.

Toys used to be an underlow product, then as the law wasn't acted upon it became an open product with stores opening catering extensively to such items, now store owners are concerned having invested hundreds of thousands in stockrspann wrote:So how do the shops here that sells toys bring them in?

Following is the text of a press release he issued today:
I wish to have it noted that the law regarding camouflage in this country is totally outdated and inappropriate, and the extreme laws stating that all types, colours, sizes and material in camouflage serves absolutely no purpose in ensuring that national security is maintained.
Laws must not be imposed simply to inconvenience citizens, but are imposed solely to ensure systems of rules are established to govern behavior.
When laws are established, it can be based on five different Principles. The Laws that involve ensuring National Security stability is based on the “Harm Principle’, whereby these Laws are enacted to protect people from being harmed by others.
The initial Law established for camouflage being illegal was by the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force in the Defence Act whereby it was ruled that “any camouflage that resembles that of the Armed Forces is illegal’. This may be deemed appropriate as persons can acquire camouflage green that is used by our Defence Force and they may attempt to imitate them hence affecting the security of a citizen.
However, this has proven to now be so farfetched worldwide, that in most countries this does not take place, and camouflage can be seen being worn by many persons in most countries, as it is a pattern and fashion and not a crime. Because one can then also consider banning the material and colour worn by the Police, as this can also be acquired and used to imitate an Officer.
It is only a handful of countries in the world that camouflage in the resemblance of the military is deemed illegal, mostly in the Caribbean .
Nevertheless, even if this Law may serve some purpose, what is totally irrelevant is the Customs Law that bans ‘ALL” colours, patterns, material and sizes of camouflage as if a pattern is a crime.
Whilst as Minister of National Security, I met with relevant officials to alter this Law that serves no purpose, but this as with dozens of other policies have also been shelved.
The reason why it is being mentioned now is that on the front page of the Newsday dated April 26, 2015 , it has a baby wearing camouflage.
As unbelievable as it is, that is a criminal offence.
How can a baby wearing a camouflage outfit, be illegal?
Likewise, pink short pants, camouflage underwear, a fluorescent blue camouflage lady’s purse, are all the examples of what is ‘deemed ‘illegal’, based on an outdated law that does nothing to ensure that the ‘Harm Principle’ is effective.
A baby wearing camouflage cannot in any way be a harmful possibility to anyone.
It is recommended that this Law be immediately revamped, to state as what was prescribed in the Defence Act, that “ only camouflage in the resemblance of the Defence Force is illegal and if used as such to imitate someone from the Defence Force” ,and not a pink camouflage purse or a yellow camouflage high heel shoe being illegal, as this is making a mockery of the Law.
