Gopeesingh via a telephone conversation with MTS Executives stated his dissatisfaction with the situation and indicated that MTS desist from such practices immediately.
In addition, EFCL was instructed by Gopeesingh to immediately begin the process of erecting a 200M security fencing, to replace a damaged fence, as this posed a security threat to the school, its students and staff.
