Stuart Young on release of stepdaughter …”WHO PAID THE RANSOM?”

Spread the word
So if Stuart Young nor any members of the immediate family did not pay any ransom, then who did?

That is the burning question after Young, Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, revealed that no money was paid for the release of his stepdaughter, Krystiana Sankar, early on Friday morning.

Krystiana, 24, was kidnapped around 6.45 pm on Thursday from a house at Alfred Drive, Crystal Stream, Diego Martin. She was found in a house at Morne Coco Road, Diego Martin around 2 am on Friday.

The police said a $167,000 ransom was paid for her safe release.

Now Young is saying that neither he nor any member of the family paid any ransom to kidnappers to free his ex-stepdaughter.

Young added, “I have seen reports of the payment of a ransom. There was absolutely no payment of any ransom by either myself or her immediate family.”

He said, “As far as I am aware, there is an ongoing investigation. I have had no contact with the police whatsoever during the course of today.”

Young said he was not getting involved and is merely awaiting the outcome of the investigation. Young did not believe the swiftness of Krystiana’s return was because of her relationship to him and the fact he is a Cabinet minister.

He declared, “I don’t think it has anything to do with influence.” Asked to comment on reports that Krystiana knew her kidnappers, Young replied, “I don’t have an answer to that question.”

He said he first learnt about Sankar’s abduction around 7 pm on Thursday, when one of her friends contacted him.

He said Sankar’s successful return was further evidence of his Government working assiduously, and assisting law enforcement to get them more efficient to protect the people of Trinidad and Tobago.

“This reminded me of the abduction of the Chinese Ambassador’s driver. It shows the security forces’ apparatus is working. I encourage them and thank them – I don’t think it had anything to do with ‘influence’.

But the police investigations are not over. They have identified certain suspects and it is a matter of time before they are arrested.

Now that Young has said neither he nor the family paid the ransom, then the question is, who paid the $167,000 as the police have stated?

Several persons will be interrogated in this matter to determine if it was in fact, a genuine kidnapping.
