Thanks to the STAR

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - All.

Ithought I’d write to thank you and The Star for what has proved to be most help­ful for our fam­ily over the last four years. My mother, Glo­ria Green­wood, was mur­dered at her home in St Lucia 4 years ago and since then we have been on a hor­ren­dous jour­ney (like so many oth­ers) to seek jus­tice and get some clo­sure. As you can imag­ine this con­tin­ues to be an ar­du­ous, frus­trat­ing and at times seem­ingly im­pos­si­ble task, of­ten made more dif­fi­cult by the lack of in­for­ma­tion avail­able to us in the UK.

We’ve found that The Star has of­ten pro­vided us with back­ground in­for­ma­tion about the state of play in SLU in re­la­tion to mat­ters such as the Foren­sic Lab, Po­lice, Court Sys­tem, Of­fice of the DPP, etc, all of which have had, and con­tinue to have, a huge knock-on ef­fect on all crim­i­nal cases. With­out this un­der­stand­ing of what is go­ing on be­hind the scenes we would have felt that we were in an even more des­o­late sit­u­a­tion, and on a hid­ing to nowhere. This does not, how­ever, mean we are at all ac­cept­ing of the ap­palling process but at least we know this shock­ing “ser­vice” is be­ing meted out to ev­ery­one. This does not make it ex­cus­able in any way. The pow­ers that be should drop their col­lec­tive heads in shame about al­low­ing this sit­u­a­tion to oc­cur. God help them should any­thing hap­pen to their near­est and dear­est.

The can­did view ex­pressed in the pa­per has been most help­ful and we look for­ward to the con­tin­u­ing ‘sup­port’ of The Star!

With very best wishes for a peace­ful Christ­mas to - Anne Pear­son
