Government Can’t Be Blamed For This Country’s Murder Rate, Says Minister Fitzgerald Hinds.

Government Can’t Be Blamed For This Country’s Murder Rate, Says Minister Fitzgerald Hinds.

Minister in the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs, Fitzgerald Hinds says the Government cannot be directly blamed for the murder rate in the country.

His comments come after more than a dozen murders were recorded in the last week.

Speaking in a television interview on Thursday, Minister Hinds said while the Government can develop initiatives to fight crime they cannot be held directly responsible for crime levels.

He added that furthermore, in his professional opinion, there is no link between Governments and crime rates.

Minister Hinds described assertions and links between the Government crime rates as a petty argument.

    Minister Hinds is hunting for excuses. Fact is the government is responsible for measures to prevent illegal weapons coming into the country. The government is responsible to equip the coast guards, customs and the police accordingly.
