This week Ol­lie Go­bat’s fam­ily dou­bled a re­ward for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the cap­ture of his killers. Ini­tially the re­ward was EC$250,000 but it has since been raised to EC$500,000.

Ol­lie Go­bat was born in Saint Lu­cia but grew up in the UK be­fore re­turn­ing to Saint Lu­cia to be­come in­volved in the ho­tel in­dus­try. His badly charred re­mains were dis­cov­ered in his burned-out ve­hi­cle on April 25 in Cap Es­tate. There has been no re­lated ar­rest.

The STAR also sought a com­ment through his act­ing press sec­re­tary Terry Fin­is­terre who in­formed us that the prime min­is­ter would not be of­fer­ing any state­ment on the mat­ter at this time.

Do­minic Raab, Bri­tish Con­ser­va­tive MP: He is call­ing

on the Bri­tish Gov­ern­ment to as­sist Saint Lu­cia in solv­ing Ol­lie Go­bat’s mur­der, by first di­a­logu­ing with

Saint Lu­cia’s prime min­is­ter.

Kenny An­thony, prime min­is­ter of Saint Lu­cia: This week he would not con­firm or deny Bri­tain’s of­fer to help in the Go­bat case on con­di­tion that per­sons found guilty would not be handed the death penalty.
