Trinidad’s Land and Marine Resources Minister, Jairam Seemungal, says he has asked Cabinet to establish a police unit to stop squatting on state lands.



He says in the past two weeks his ministry had to intervene in 75 areas to deal with squatters encroaching on state lands.



The government minister says squatting is still a challenge for his ministry, which also has to manage some 60,000 regularised squatters.
