APNU executives and supporters picket outside the Office of Home Affairs Minister
The police must not continue to operate as gunslingers and serious reforms and training are needed; that is the view of the APNU. Today executives and supporters held a picketing exercise outside of the office of the minister of Home Affairs at Eve Leary. Former Police Commissioner, Winston Felix, said, that in the instances that have been unfolding, none of them required lethal force.
The Party says the Police must first recognize where the house is leaking and use corrective measures.
Leader of the APNU, David Granger, pointed to the lack of foresight on the part of the Government to implement the recommendations of the disciplined forces commission.
Member of parliament Volda Lawrence said, the APNU is standing by its no-confidence motion in the Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee.
The joint opposition has pledged to take all the necessary courses of action to have the Government address what they see as crisis unfolding with the police killing of young men.
