PM says increase in violent crimes is quite strange


Prime Minister Dr Denzil Douglas says he is perplexed at the rate of violent crime in St Kitts Nevis in recent weeks.

Speaking on his weekly radio programme 'Ask the Prime Minister' on Tuesday, Dr Douglas also extended condolences to the relatives of those killed here so far this year.

Prime Minister 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, and worshipping their God," said Dr Douglas.
