‘Bring killers to jus­tice’

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page -

CASTRIES – Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Min­is­ter Sarah Flood-beaubrun says those re­spon­si­ble for the mur­der of a woman last week need to be ‘hounded’ and brought to jus­tice.

“They must feel the full weight of the law de­scend­ing upon them, and I think it is a re­spon­si­bil­ity of every St Lu­cia cit­i­zen to do what we have to do to find the per­pe­tra­tors,” the min­is­ter, who is also an at­tor­ney, told a news con­fer­ence yes­ter­day.

Saa­dia By­ron, 32, was re­ported miss­ing since Thurs­day night. The mother of three was found mur­dered on Satur­day, her semi-nude body roughly 100 yards from her home buried in a shal­low grave made of rocks.

Rel­a­tives of the La­borie woman said she had made sev­eral re­ports to po­lice of threats to her life by the fa­ther of her last child but no ac­tion ap­peared to have been taken.

Po­lice said that their records show that By­ron had later re­quested that no ac­tion be taken in con­nec­tion with the re­port.

They said two men had been taken into cus­tody in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent. (CMC)
