Murders in Heights of Guanapo another reason Hinds must go, says Moonilal

Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal said the Guanapo killings on Thursday are another reason on the list for why National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds should be fired.

Shortly after midnight on Thursday, armed gunmen stormed a Guanapo home killing four people, three of which were children and injured five others. Deceased are Faith Peterkin, 10, Shane Peterkin, 17, Tiffany Peterkin, 19, and Adris Crawford, 17. Wounded were Christian Stephen, 18, James Mohammed, 25, Shenika Peterkin, 21, Arianna Peterkin, 14, and Jamiah Crawford, 14.

In a release, Moonilal said: “The latest ghastly mass murders and a new round of travel advisories from developed countries are further compelling reasons for the immediate dismissal of failed Minister of National Security Fitzgerald Hinds.”

He said Dr Rowley must abandon “his arrogance and conceit” and fire Hinds who he described as “the most disastrous Security Minister in the country’s history.”

Moonilal said the PM’s failure to remove Hinds means he has no concern for the safety and welfare of citizens.

Moonilal ended the release by singling out the Caricom crime symposium held earlier this year, saying the Guanapo killings were evidence it was a wasted investment.

“Clearly the $3.4 million crime symposium at the Hyatt has led to absolutely no positive change in the fight against the new breed of heinous criminals that stalk our land.”
