Minister: Crime is everybody’s business

Asserting that crime is everybody’s business, National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis, has noted that because the police cannot be everywhere, when a crime occurs and persons have information they need to speak to law enforcement officials.

Francis explained that alternatively, such persons can speak to someone in whom they can confide who in turn, can pass the information to the police.

“The quicker we solve these matters, I think perpetrators will realise that if they do commit a crime they are going to be caught very quickly and the justice system will deal with them,” the former Deputy Police Commissioner told reporters  on Monday.

He disclosed that later this year after the budget is presented, an additional two Judges will be put in place to help deal with criminal activities in a speedier manner.

Francis spoke against the backdrop of a recent spate of homicides.
