Trinidad fishing hit by piracy

Pirates, predators force Orange Valley fishermen to seek jobs on land

by CHARLES KONG SOO

Fish­ing is the lifeblood for Or­ange Val­ley. But the deaths of fish­er­men, Ja­son Bap­tiste, 30, Hem­raj Alex Sook­nanan, 18, Anand Ram­per­sad, 39, Justin Kissoon, 19, Bran­don Kissoon, 21, Shi­va Ramdeo, 27, and Leslie De Boulet has put a damper on the trade.

Their deaths still re­ver­ber­ate in the qui­et vil­lage. It is as if the com­mu­ni­ty as a whole were gut­ted as their names are talked about in hushed whis­pers and fear per­vades the tight­ly-knit vil­lage.
