Press Secretary to the Prime Minister Jadia Jn Pierre-Emmanuel is defending the anti-gang bill, stating it will not unfairly target individuals and groups.

She said the legislation speaks clearly as to what constitutes a gang.

Jn Pierre-Emmanuel said the announcement of the first reading of the bill was a deliberate tactic to draw the public into a discussion about what the government believes is a very important piece of legislation.

She asserted however that the bill is not an “overnight piece of legislation” or a knee-jerk reaction to any one event.

The anti-gang bill is being pitched as a means of improving the legislative framework to ensure law and order is maintained. The press secretary believes the public will support the legislation.

A copy of the anti-gang bill can be requested from the office of parliament.

Jn Pierre-Emmanuel urges members of the public obtain the document to make an informed opinion about the merit of the bill.

    • Davar,
      I hope you are NOT serious with your comment. Obviously a gang is NOT some guys meeting to play football, basketball, etc, etc. Do yourself a favour and read the bill before making such an idiotic comment.
