Following the murder of the four men attached to the China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) Limited on Sunday, CHEC and Works Minister Dr Omar Davies have offered their condolences to the families and friends of the deceased.

The four men were ambushed and robbed by gunmen after leaving the CHEC, Linstead, site office of the North-South Highway Project.

Davies, in a statement, said the attack was a dastardly, cowardly act aimed at undermining the rule of law and order in the country.

"I am extremely saddened that someone could be so cruel and heartless and attach so little value to human lives," he said. "We will be taking steps to meet with the commissioner of police with a view to discussing security issues as they relate to activities at the site of the North-South Highway."

CHEC also pledged its full commitment to working with the police to bring the killers to justice.

The company also noted that it looked forward to the day when "each person learns to respect the lives of others and to accept that we should all work together for the safety and well-being of everyone".
