Saint Lucia DPP gives assurances following findings
The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Victoria Charles Clarke, says she intends to follow the law and constitution of St. Lucia as her office deals with a report of alleged extra judicial killings by police officers.
“Any matter referred to me will be received and treated in accordance with our laws. I do not act on emotion or public opinion so I do not wish to join the discussion,” Charles-Clarke said on television.
On Sunday night, Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony, in a nationwide broadcast said, “Whether anyone is to be prosecuted is solely for the Director of Public Prosecutions to determine after evaluating and assessing the probative value of the evidence placed before her . . . The most that the Executive Arm of the Government can do is to provide the resources to the Director of Public Prosecutions to carry out the duties and the responsibilities assigned to her by our Constitution.”
