Investigators have completed a probe into last month’s deadly explosion at the Rayneau Quarries in Cul de Sac which claimed the lives of four people, the latest victim succumbing to his injuries in Martinique last week.
In making the disclosure, National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis, told reporters that the some eleven investigators from the United States have indicated that they are in the process of preparing a report to be submitted to the police and the DPP.
“They will come up with their recommendations and actions that need to be taken,” Francis said.
He made it clear that the government is ‘very serious’ about getting to the bottom of the matter but cannot rush to judgement.
Francis expressed the hope that the report of the investigators could be made public.
“We are all very anxious to find out what happened – lives were lost and other persons suffered damage to their homes and so we need to deal with this matter very expeditiously,” the minister observed.
Asked about the matter of compensation, he said:
“As long as they can prove that it is as a result of the blast then they have reason for recourse – they will have to see their lawyers and ask for compensation.”
