The Ministry of National Security says that GSU officers exercised justifiable force during the chaos which exploded on Sunday evening on Mayflower Street. A release from the Ministry states that quote, “there was justifiable cause for security personnel to enter the area as there were multiple reports of gunfire in the vicinity, which created a state of fear and panic among residents in the area.” End of quote. Two officers were reportedly injured during the mayhem. The Ministry says it is satisfied that the authorities exercised great restraint in the face of verbal and physical attacks on them. Sandra Uter, says that the crowd reacted to the GSU’s ill-mannered approach in trying to arrest one of their own.
The Ministry of National Security says it stands ready to arrest and prosecute those responsible for public terror.
