Sangre Grande resident Keegan Roopchand is now saying the so-called Carnival terror plot was a scripted hoax he was given to recite by Jordanian security officials who tortured him to ensure he said what they wanted him to.

During his recent four-month detention in Jordan, Roopchand said he was dragged out of a vehicle by his beard, stripped naked, searched in “humiliating ways” and pressured by Jordanian authorities attempting to lnk him with a terror plot in T&T and the Islamic State (ISIS). He claims the Jordanians “scripted a plot”, rehearsed it with him many times and he was forced to go along with it. “I was living a lie to survive,” he added on being questioned by FBI officials also.
