MP Arrindell Questions Minister of Justice on Policies Regarding Security Companies;

Highly Commends Police Organization for Rapid Response in Apprehending Alleged Cupecoy Murder Suspects

(United Peoples UP Party) UP Member of Parliament (MP) Hon. Gracita Arrindell has penned a letter with 10 questions to the Minister of Justice Hon. Roland Duncan seeking information with respect to Security Companies in the aftermath of the recent brutal double murders in Cupecoy. MP Arrindell is questioning the reliability of background checks and screening of persons employed by security companies.


"I highly commend the men and woman in the police force and justice department for working tirelessly to keep our island safe for our residents and valued visitors. Specifically, kudos, and a heartfelt thank you to those officers who worked around the clock to solve this heinous crime. Please convey my appreciation," MP Arrindell informed the Minister in her letter.

The issue of safety and security MP Arrindell pointed out to Minister Duncan, " …has always been high on my agenda in representing our people. In order for me to make an informed opinion based on facts, I herewith submit to you as Minister of Justice several questions pertaining to the abovementioned subject matter."

MP Arrindell has also queried the Minister on the following: "The brutal manner in which allegedly the female victim was murdered, calls for special investigation. Can the Ministry indicate if it intends to ask for the input of professional entities such as a psychiatrist or any other appropriate behavioural specialist, to get to the source of the reason for the display of this ‘rage’ by the young criminal (s) allegedly involved in the murders mentioned above."

Another question from the MP to the Minister is: "What preventative measures or policies does the Ministry intend to take with regards to the security companies personnel. For example does the Ministry intend to call a meeting with the security companies and agencies in an effort to be on the same level of understanding the importance of having reliable, screened and trained personnel?"
