PUP condemns recent surge of crime

With a sudden surge in crime over the past 48 hours, the PUP is calling on the Government to act decisively to implement policies and strategies to address crime. They are urging policymakers in Cabinet who, quote, “seem as confused, clueless and incompetent as ever,” to give crime and lawlessness the highest priority at this time.

With a sudden surge in crime over the past 48 hours, the PUP is calling on the Government to act decisively to implement policies and strategies to address crime. They are urging policymakers in Cabinet who, quote, “seem as confused, clueless and incompetent as ever,” to give crime and lawlessness the highest priority at this time. The release, however, didn’t focus only on the victims or the rate of crime that has seen an increase but also it spoke on the white collared crimes allegedly committed by the elected officials in the UDP.  For instance, the release states, quote, “The former Minister of National Security, John Saldivar, entrusted by the Prime Minister, has been accused of taking bribes from a man who now stands convicted of fraud and money laundering. Under the watch of that former Minister, an unprecedented number of drug planes landed in our country. Additionally, there are many other instances of Ministers of Government breaking the law, without repercussions. In fact, the Supreme Court found Prime Minister Dean Barrow guilty of breaking the law when he breached the Finance and Audit Reform Act multiple times – without repercussions. If we as leaders expect – demand – a nation of laws, then we MUST follow the laws.” End quote. Pup accused those in government of playing political and power games, meanwhile criminals are running loose and children are dying.
