The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Prime Min­is­ter Hon­ourable Allen M. Chas­tanet met with Res­i­dent Bri­tish High Com­mis­sioner Steve McCready on March 23, 2017 and of­fered con­do­lences on be­half of the Gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia in re­la­tion to the re­cent at­tack at the Houses of Par­lia­ment in West­min­ster. Five per­sons re­port­edly died in the at­tack which took place in Lon­don on Wed­nes­day 22nd March 2017. The Prime Min­is­ter con­veyed the deep­est sym­pa­thies of the Saint Lu­cian peo­ple to the Gov­ern­ment of the United King­dom.

Said the Prime Min­is­ter: “The Gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia re­ceived with sad­ness the news of the deadly at­tack which claimed in­no­cent lives and left many wounded. We of­fer prayers for the fam­i­lies, loved ones and friends of all who are af­fected by this sense­less tragedy.

“This was not just an at­tack on the Bri­tish Par­lia­ment but an at­tack on democ­racy. There are those amongst us who are in­flu­enced by hate and ex­trem­ist views and who seek to in­stil fear and divi­sion. We con­demn all acts of ter­ror­ism and stand in sol­i­dar­ity with you as you seek to bring those who per­pe­trate such re­pug­nant acts to jus­tice.

“We ex­press hope for healing and a re­newed sense of de­ter­mi­na­tion to con­quer the dread­ful scourge of ex­trem­ism. The Gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia con­tinue to sup­port all who pro­mote peace and unity.”
