Basseterre, St. Kitts (CUOPM) – St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas has expressed condolences to the families of victims of recent violent crimes.
In an opening statement on Tuesday’s weekly radio programme “Ask the Prime Minister,” Dr. Douglas said the sudden increase in violent crime in recent weeks – is a phenomenon that is quite strange in light of the positive and welcome turnaround that the country has seen over the past three years.
“We must always remember, however, that the vast majority of Kittitians and Nevisians are law-abiding human-beings who go about their daily lives, earning a living, taking care of their children, reaching out and interacting with friends and family, worshiping their God,” said Dr. Douglas.
He said the victims have invested their energy in activities that improve their lives, and improve the lives of others – because, on a daily basis, “most of us are in some way, involved in providing goods or services for others.”
“I extend sincere condolences to the friends and family of any person who has lost their life, and sincere thanks to all who have been assisting the police out of a commitment to promote peace, promote stability, and promote community.”
