Grenada PM: There Should Be No Escape For Criminals Destabilising The Society

Grenada’s Prime Minister, Doctor Kith Mitchell,  has called here for greater unity in improving security across the region, CMC has reported.

Mitchell  was addressing the 40th annual convention of the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) in Vieux-Fort over the last weekend, according to CMC.

“So something happens in St Lucia, we should know in Grenada overnight. Something happens in Trinidad, we should know,” the Grenada leader was quoted as saying.

He recalled  that recently a gentleman shot two people in Trinidad and he ran to Grenada.

“Now if we did not have a very good system of checks that man could have been roaming in Grenada without anybody knowing,” Mitchell said, adding that the man was caught “within six days”.

“What I am saying therefore is that should happen in every single country. There should be no escape for criminals destabilising our society. Our children must grow up in a country of peace and stability,” he said.

CMC reported that earlier, Prime Minister Chastanet, who was re-elected leader of the party, urged supporters to defend the government in the face of criticism from the opposition as it builds “an impressive track record”.

He said that the opposition had been critical of the economic policies of the government that are now bearing fruit

He also promised to deal with the crime situation here.

He said CCTV cameras will be installed in the northern section of the island later this month and the new telecommunication system for the police will also be in place.

“So I want to put the criminals on notice that their days are numbered. Saint Lucians are fed up and we will take it no more,” CMC quoted the Saint Lucia Prime Minister as telling ruling party supporters.
