Govt ready to tackle crime after the SoE

The National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds says that while he is aware that the criminal elements may be gearing up to become more active after the lifting of the SoE, he’s not unduly anxious.

He made his comment this morning while speaking with Power 102 Digital.

Minister Hinds explained that he’s mindful of the concerns of the business community and the population, noting the security apparatus is well poised to address this issue.

The National Security Minister admitted however that there is some level of anxiety given the number of crimes being committed in the country along with the number of illegal weapons owned by criminals.

He added that the increase in the murder toll compared to last year is also of concern.
