EU Diplomat confident IMPACS recommendations being followed

European Union diplomat, Daniela Tramacere, has expressed confidence that recommendations are being followed in connection with the IMPACS report on claims of extra-judicial killings by local police officers.

The report was compiled by a team of Jamaican investigators.

“We have received strong reassurance that the due process is taking place,” Tramacere told reporters here.

The EU Ambassador to Barbados, the OECS, CARICOM and CARIFORUM said she and other diplomats representing countries of  the EU have listened very carefully to what the DPP has told them.

“We are looking forward to seeing further developments in the good direction in the future,” she said.

The EU diplomat spoke  Tuesday as a meeting with Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis and other officials got underway at the office of the prime minister.

Acting Director of Public Prosecutions, Daarsrean Green who was also at the meeting made a presentation to the gathering.

Tramacere, asked directly whether she was happy with the progress on the IMPACS matter said it was not for her to judge.

But she disclosed that the EU has been following developments very closely because of a strong interest in seeing that the Saint Lucia government is doing due diligence in following up on this “very stressful and unfortunate event which took place.”

“We are somehow reassured that measures are being taken and we are looking forward to the further completion of this process,” the EU diplomat explained.

She said the meeting with the Prime Minister and other officials was ‘routine’.

The EU official disclosed that an effort will be made to have such meetings twice a year.

    so tell us what actions are being taken. Are we to be left in the dark. Remember the police officers being made to carry the cross the shouldnt have yet to open their mouths and say anything to the pubic. I hope they will if it comes to that and the public to will come forward and contradict some of the untruths in the investigation made. We all know that the investigators only interviewed who they wanteds to and that there are others out there that aught to be interviewed but were never interviewed. Only God knows who is wrong and who is right and he alone will serve justice at the appropriate time. To those who initiated that out of malice and position only god will deal with them . As we are all seeing we pay for what we do wrong while alive and not when dead and when we dont pay for it our children and grandchildren pay for it. That is what is call the generation curse. Love Lucian and let us be our brothers keeper instead of trying to destroy our brothers out of malice and greed.
