OPPOSITION LEADER: STILL MUCH TO DO IN FIGHT AGAINST CRIME, HARRIS-LED GOVERNMENT ADVISED TO UP EFFORTS

20th June, 2018

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts (KYSS FM) – There is still much to be done in the fight against crime in St. Kitts and Nevis.

This was the position expressed by Federal Opposition Leader, Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil Douglas as he hosted his weekly radio show ‘Ask The Leader’ on Kyss Fm on Tuesday 19th June 2018.

Underscoring the fact that criminal activity in the country has rapidly increased, Dr. Douglas said Prime Minister, Dr. Timothy Harris’ government must keep its promise the people to invest significant time and resources in devising ways to decrease crime.

Remarking that crime is a major factor in the breakdown of society, the St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party Leader also stressed that additional support must be provided to strengthen vital public and social institutions including families.

“The people need help,” he said, adding “We need to make sure that our young people are gainfully engaged rather than being given idle time to get into the wrong company.”

He stressed that the Federation’s people must show more respect for themselves and each other as rampant crime suggests that a tremendous lack of respect for human life has spread throughout the society.
