Saint Lucia Confirms Tight Security For T20 World Cup


Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has disclosed that Saint Lucia and other Caribbean host countries for the Men’s T20 World Cup are taking all necessary measures to ensure the event’s safety and security.

“Like a good jazz, we expect good cricket,” Pierre told reporters on Tuesday, referencing Saint Lucia’s recent successful hosting of its acclaimed Jazz and Arts festival.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the International Cricket Council (ICC) have made it clear that safety and security are their utmost priority.

They have assured all stakeholders that they are fully committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for the T20 World Cup.

“We have a comprehensive and robust security plan in place,” a statement from the two organisations noted.

The joint statement earlier this month came amid reports that Trinidad & Tobago Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley confirmed that security agencies were monitoring a possible terror threat to the event.

“The threat of terrorism – we are taking all the necessary steps to deal with,” Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre stated.

He recalled that the region hosted the ICC World Cup over a decade ago.

Pierre, who is responsible for national security, asserted that the threat of terrorism at that time was higher.

“We combatted it,” he asserted, adding that the stakeholders have united in a strong collective effort to address security issues regarding the upcoming Men’s T20 World Cup.

  1. The Crime Surge in St.Lucia is Heart Breaking .What can the police Detect if there’s Terrorists Coming to St.Lucia as Cricket Fans . Where are the Sniffing Dogs???????????.

  2. We can hardly deal with our local misbehavior boys with their bad manners now you’re adding the visiting ones? there’s too much already to dead with before visitors so good luck with that.

  3. That explains the final resurfacing and repairs of the beausejour road, the four lane isnt important enough? Does an international event need to take place on the road like the demise of a diplomat as the result of the road and traffic conditions have to occur to trigger a response? Only when it serves a purpose things are done in this country.during the hurricane season all back roads are prone to blockage and flooding the main highway will become a clogged artery

  4. Wait is this a joke? Isn’t this the same guy that threw his hands on the air saying that there’s nothing he could do and his father was the police man not him? He still can’t handle vfort but he can handle terrorist threats? Man doesn’t know his butt from his elbows.
