The New Democratic Party (NDP) has reiterated its call for the police to redouble their efforts to bring the perpetrators of crime to justice and for persons who may have information that might assist the police in their investigations to provide it to the police.
This comes in wake of the report of the discovery on September 1, 2018 of the body of Rodney George, a security guard, at a tire shop in Villa, which brings the number of killings here to 23 thus far in 2018.
The NDP said in a statement that the regularity of homicides in this country is of great concern and is contributing to a pervasive climate of fear throughout the country.
The NDP is once again calling on the Minister of National Security, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, to address the nation on his government’s plan to deal with the worsening crime situation in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
In the meantime, the NDP urges the Vincentian public to remain united as it is only through our caring and concern for each other can we come through this crisis. It will take strong, united and caring communities to confront an address this crisis of crime and violence.
