Castries South MP Dr. Ernest Hilaire has expressed sorrow over the fatal shooting of teenager Miguela Joseph in Faux A Chaud, Castries, on Saturday.

Hilaire told reporters on the sidelines of a Cabinet meeting on Monday that he had spoken to the family, expressing his condolences and sympathy.

He said he knows the family very well.

“It is a sad day,” the Acting Prime Minister declared while disclosing that the deceased teenager was to have danced at an event he had on Sunday in Bananes.

Hilaire emphasised that he did not know all the details regarding the fatal Faux A Chaud shooting and would not speculate about what happened.

” I have heard a version of what happened but I do not think it would be appropriate for me to comment on it,” he told reporters.

However, the Castries South MP said he thinks the incident highlights the situation in Saint Lucia regarding firearms.

He recalled that recently parliament amended the law on unlicensed firearms and associated items.

“We are taking a tough stand on it,” Hilaire asserted.

In this regard, he noted that the police have been doing a lot to clamp down.

“You would have seen repeatedly in the news the successes of the police in apprehending persons with illegal firearms. So we are going to continue to spread the message that the law will be enforced as firmly as possible and to say to Saint Lucians really we have to find different ways of dealing with our issues and not resorting to instruments of violence,” he said.

  2. This is No Accidental Shooting .Why was there an illegal Firearm at the House and it was not Reported to the Police .That’s what Happens when People Coverup illegal activities

  3. GODLESSNESS = LAWLESSNESS
    You either stay in the pit of hell or rather, turn to the Almighty. The dancing to demon gods will continue to drag you to hell. There is another world out there, a Spiritual world of Holiness, a completely different one from Alcohol, Drugs, Feting and dancing; but your Deputy P.M. sees things differently. Carnival and its vulgar half nakedness and music is that of the demon gods, so open your spiritual eyes to see where St. Lucia is going. May the Lord bless St. Lucia.
