The Opposition spokesman on National Security Peter Bunting has criticised the National Security Minister Robert Montague saying he does not seem enthusiastic about his job as crime continues to plague St James.

There have been increased calls for the authorities to take decisive actions to halt the run-away murder tally in St James now at 200 since the start of the year.

At a press conference yesterday, the opposition spokesman renewed his call for more human and vehicular resources to be allocated to St James to stem the growing crime rate in the parish.

However, Bunting said though he wants an emergency response to crime in St James a state of emergency is not the answer.
