Davies to meet police commissioner over highway security
Works Minister, Dr Omar Davies, says he will be moving to meet with the Police Commissioner to discuss security issues at the site of the North-South Highway.
In a statement, Davies said he was extremely saddened by yesterday’s attack on four men attached to the China Harbour Engineering Company - the entity developing the North-South highway.
He says the four men were shot as they transported the payroll for men working on the Ferry to Linstead leg of the North-South Highway.
It’s reported that the gunmen stole $1.5 million.
The Works Minister said the attack was a dastardly, cowardly act aimed at undermining the rule of law and order in the country.
Davies also said the security issues will have to be addressed.
