In a letter to the Editor, Mr. George slammed his former Cabinet colleague for speaking out about the recent spike in murders in this country.
George said for the first three months of his tenure as National Security Minister there have been almost 500 serious crimes less than the three preceding months when Warner was in charge.
Between February to April, 3,349 serious crimes were reported, figures provided by George stated while between May to July, 2,850 serious crimes were reported, he stated.
He said citizens can rest assured that the protective services will “push back” the criminal element.
On April 22, George replaced Warner as this country’s National Security Minister.
