PM Encourages Cooperation

 Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves is encouraging Vincentians to support law enforcement authority in the execution of their duties.
Dr. Gonsalves yesterday pointed out that a lot of Vincentians are not aware of what it takes to protect the citizens of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He reference the unfortunate incident that took place in Union Island on Sunday afternoon which led to the shooting death of three Venezuelans and the drowning death of one of this country’s customs officials. The swift actions taken by the Customs Official and Policeman involved in the incident is one of courage, commitment and devotion to duty, Gonsalves said.
The Prime Minister stated that Union Island is recently being used for organized crimes mainly by foreigners and as such in the next four weeks one of the interceptor vessels to be received from the US will be station on Union Island to strengthen the assets at the Coast Guard.
