Francis impressed by Francis

Outspoken human rights activist, Mary Francis, paid a courtesy call on National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis, and has told the Times that she has high expectations of him.

Francis said based on the discussions she had with the minister, she believes that the necessary reforms required in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) will materialize, especially in terms of transparency and accountability.

The human rights activist expressed confidence that under the new minister, what she described as  the culture of impunity in the RSLPF will be dealt with.

The National Security Minister is a former Deputy Police Commissioner.

“I think I have high expectations and things will really be pushed to a higher level,” Francis, who is an Attorney at Law, asserted.

She indicated that coming from his background and with his experience in the police force,plus his “affable” disposition, the new Minister of National Security has assets that will assist him in carrying out his duties, especially in overseeing the modernization of the RSLPF.

The Coordinator of the National Centre for Legal Aid and Human Rights told the Times that based on her discussions with Hermangild Francis, she  also has hope for the justice system and salvaging the IMPACS situation.
