St Lucia’s National Security Minister Hermangild Francis

(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – Minister for Home Affairs, Justice and National Security Honourable Hermangild Francis has expressed profound concern regarding the promotion of lewd behavior and explicit content in advertisements for social events.

This expression of concern also comes against the back- drop of a promotional video which appears to involve the promotion of an event for college students dubbed “Tsunami Lawn Party” which has been heavily circulated on social media.

The Minister says it is particularly disturbing that this crude video seems to feature students of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.

“This type of conduct is extremely concerning and one that needs to be denounced by all key sectors. These young people are seen as the future leaders of the country. I know that the community regards them highly as very intelligent, talented, young people with bright futures ahead of them; so you can imagine the disappointment to see this type of material is being promoted by some of the students”.

Minister Francis says the promotion of lewd behavior will not be tolerated. “There is legislation to address this. There are also requirements to be met as regards the holding of Mass Crowd Events and the Police handle that aspect. However, I do know that the senior police officers who are charged with granting approvals for such events are very insistent that certain standards are met.”

Minister Francis indicated that he would also engage the Minister for Education Honourable Dr. Gale Rigobert in dialogue on this development.

  5. New Testament Verse of the Day:
    "God blesses you who are hungry now, for you will be satisfied. God blesses you who weep now, for in due time you will laugh."

  8. The actions of current leaders influence that of future leaders. A minister in the middle of a scandal can still keep his position, have the support of his colleagues and be bold and courageous in our "Honorable" house about said issue, what example is that for the youth?

  10. Ministers Hermangild & Gale wake-up.
    Have you ever paid a visit to the Sir Arthur Lewis College?
    There is open provocative cuddling & kissing taking place in the open.
    Girls straddling boys in the open.
    Below the Inniskilling Monument area is heavy sex among the students.
    They even discard the condoms in the area.

    I mentioned this to some admin staff a year ago & they said it's sad there is nothing they can do.
    I even took some photos I will look for them.

    • Sir this all boils down to the parents of the children. Can parents discipline their youth when they are not discipline themselves? Fathers involved with many different women, sleeps all over the place; their wives feeling alone at home starts cheating as well, the parents can't talk to those students, the students have no self esteem they want to be part of the crowd they do all the wrong things. Parents have to be responsible for their children's actions.
      Concerned...look at the problem with innocent students being killed at schools in the USA. The shooters family always notice the rebellious attitude in their children, the threats their children makes to them yet they ignore all the signs why? They love their kids to much, they won't call the authorities but some innocent student dies because of the Parents actions. If a victims parent decides we've had enough of this nonsense and gets his gun goes out saying you killed 17 students I'm getting rid of 17 of your immediate families starting from your parents......I'm sure every parent will start to do their job because the message has reached home. You don't discipline your child your family is gone.
      One thing I know GOD will deal with all the parents who refuse to teach their children the right way. Teach your children to respect the elderly, themselves, people in authority, their Teachers who educates them, stop bulling other students, don't take advantage of other students whether they are poor and needy, respect people property they pass by your car they scrap it with a nail, don't envy people things, you get a bag or a phone take it back to the owners, don't persecute your neighbor, don't forget to say thank you, yes please, I'm sorry and the list goes on.
      Parents PRAY with your children, Spend time with your children please......
