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.
