Nevis Premier Speaking In The House About Crime
July 9th, 2008
Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry, has appealed for calm and said the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) is doing everything within its means to ensure that the recent upsurge in criminal activity on Nevis continues to be properly monitored.
“I have had regular discussions with the police and they have assured me that they are working very closely with the police in St.Kitts, in terms of monitoring movements between St.Kitts and Nevis, efforts are also being made to increase the number of persons on the force in Nevis and for Culturama, special arrangements have been made”.
The Hon. Joseph Parry said this on Tuesday in the Nevis House of Assembly when the Nevis Island Administration landmark legislation, The Nevis Geothermal Resources Development Ordinance, 2008 was tabled, debated and passed by the Nevis Island Administration.
During the Premier’s opening “Statements by Ministers”, he made an appeal for the people of all the various communities in Nevis to be our brother’s keeper. He urged the general public to make information on suspicious activities available to the Police thus assisting the Police in crime solving.
