PNC/R executive Aubrey Norton describes compensation package offered by COI as ridiculous – 25th Mar 2013
Outspoken PNC/R executive, Aubrey Norton, has described the compensation package offered by the Commission of Inquiry to the Linden protest victims as ridiculous. Norton feels that the compensation did not take into consideration the existing cost of living.
He said the evidence is clear that the Police are the ones who pulled the trigger and vowed that the people of Linden will do everything in their power to ensure a better package for the dead and injured.
Already, Government’s Chief spokesman, Dr. Roger Luncheon is saying his administration will not increase the package that was offered.
Norton believes otherwise.
The injured and relatives of the dead have rejected what was offered by the Commission of Inquiry. Recently, Regional Chairman, Sharma Solomon wrote to the Commissioner of Police requesting that action be taken against the officers fingered in the shooting incident ,that was after the COI found the Police responsible for the shooting deaths and injuries of the protestors.
