Baying for blood will not address issues

The Catholic Commission for Social Justice (CCSJ) and the Greater Caribbean for Life (GCL) is urging T&T’s Government to focus on human development and crime prevention rather than expend time and energy in seeking to resume hanging.

CCSJ & GCL are aware that passions are running high in T&T because of the recent brutal murder of 23-year-old Andrea Bharatt, barely two months after 18-year-old Ashanti Riley was also murdered.

In a release on Monday, February 8, the organisations condemned the rise of violent crime in the region and expressed solidarity with victims. It however stated, the call by some to resume hanging is not going to fix the many problems that have led to this juncture where women and girls, indeed, citizens in general, are unable to go about their daily lives in peace.
