The Chairman of the Equal Opportunity Tribunal, Madam Justice Donna Prowell-Raphael has observed “rants” with “racial overtones” on social media. She warned that this “offensive behaviour” is grounds for persons to lodge a complaint to the Equal Opportunity Tribunal—a “free” remedy for dealing with grievances of victimisation and discrimination.

Prowell-Raphael’s comments were made at Sunday’s virtual national symposium (August 30) hosted by The University of The West Indies’ Faculty of Law, and the Catholic Commission for Social Justice (CCSJ) on ‘Understanding and Reconciling Race Relations in Trinidad and Tobago’.
