Prime Minister comments on Police Officer charged with murder

On Tuesday, Police Officer Ryan Wagner was charged for the murder of Eduardo Manuel Sanchez who was found dead with a bullet wound to his body in Camalotte Village. Wagner was the driver of Kim Simplis Barrow, the Special Envoy for Women and Child and the wife of Prime Minister Dean Barrow who says that he was surprised when he heard of the matter.

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“I still can’t quite understand what happened. He was during the time he was with my family extremely professional, he was a highly trained individual, a member of ESAT at one point. I thought that he was very disciplined, very level headed, I didn’t know him to be a drinker or a smoker so what has happened profoundly disturbs me and baffles me. I of course can’t get into the circumstances such as are being described by various people who don’t necessarily know what they are talking about.”

Wagner’s next court date is scheduled for November 2.
