Community Activist Urges Police To Arrest Joachim Henry

Community Activist Aaron Alexander has urged the police to arrest Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) candidate, Joachim Henry.

Henry, a former SLP Senator, confronted his political rival, Guy Joseph, last month.

It occurred while a service was underway at the Forestiere SDA church.

Henry’s son died recently.

But Aaron Alexander believes police should arrest and charge him regardless of the circumstances.

Alexander said he has watched and waited since the SDA church incident.

But he lamented that there appears to be one law for some and no law for others.

Alexander recalled that officers arrested a young man who appeared to be of ‘Rastafarian inclination’ some time ago, when the man disturbed a church service.

That incident occurred at the Pierrot Catholic church on July 19, 2020.

The man set a statue outside the church ablaze by throwing a home made incendiary device at it.

He later entered the church with more devices in hand.

But people subdued him and eventually handed over to the police.

The Iyanola Council for the Advancement of Rastafari (ICAR), of which Alexander is President, had condemned that church incident.

However, Alexander said police have not arrested and charged Joachim Henry.

“I am calling for equal rights and justice for people in this country,” the Community Activist asserted.

“I am not in support of any political party, this is a matter of law and order and justice,” he declared.

Alexander said he did not want people to conclude that he was supporting Guy Joseph and the ruling party.

“It has nothing to do with that,” he declared.

And Alexander said as far as he is concerned, both the ruling and the opposition parties are failures.

He called on the police commissioner to take note of what is happening under his watch.

Alexander said justice must be meted out regardless of who the person is and what office they hold.

“Justice for one and justice for all,” he stated.
