Group formed to address remands situation


A newly formed advocacy group aimed at addressing an increase in remands at the Bordelais Correctional Facility will present itself and plans to the media at a news conference on July 31, 2014.

Remand Justice said it is an organisation that is looking to help devise a way forward for an improved justice system on the island. Persons have been on remand for up to five years without trial.

According to the organisation, three of its members will present excerpts of the group’s position paper, provide updates on meetings with government officials, as well as an eight-point action plan, which it believes will not only improve the situation with remands at Bordelais but will bring forth “an overhaul of the criminal justice system in St. Lucia”.

The news conference takes place at the Monroe College Campus at Barnard Hill, Castries from 9 a.m. tomorrow.

  1. "Bambi" something tells me that you are already in that group. Stop pissing in the people's eyes. Good PR by the way because "in the land of the blind the one eye man is king."

  2. Monroe College!! Come on, its the government doing what it does best. I bet Gus Small is a big part of this. Wasn't there a security conference there recently where yours truly (PM) was the guest speaker. I have my money on people from this Monroe conference being given consultancies to look into St. Lucia's national security issues after.

    Organized crime in disguise again. Ask oyurself this; how is Monroe College and by implication Gus Small and others associated to the Labour Party? Lol, lol, jokers. You people in St. Lucia are nothing but suckers falling for every trick in the book. Just in response to a little bit of Andie George pressure. Do Whats Right; don't lie to the people there are always repurcussions.

  3. Don't know how its going to happen, Does this group really think they can change the justice system here? THINK AGAIN, Politicians, Judges, Magistrates, Lawyers and other persons in authority just cannot, and a so called group will try. GOOD LUCK!

  4. They already know what the problems are. They are wasting more time and resources. We seem to be doing a lot of that lately.
