FNM: Minister of National Security’s Crime Address eons too late and insensitive - Aug 28, 2015 - 5:31:13 PM

I echo and join in the sentiments of the nation that the national address by the Minister of National Security was inconsiderate, lacked depth and eons too late.

The Minister of National Security in a surprising turn of events finally found his voice and addressed the nation in a "snap address" in the midst of the entire country preparing for a forecasted direct hit by Tropical Storm Erika. How untimely! How insensitive! How late! The Minister has once again insulted the Bahamian people.  He has not given the vexing and heart wrenching crime problem the priority it needs, especially since the last time we heard from him was in early July, and even then it was another announcement...

FNM: The PLP has Surrendered to the Criminal Elements “Out of Ideas and Out of Time” - Aug 28, 2015 - 2:02:26 PM

Last night the Minister with responsibility for National Security broke his long silence on the PLP government’s plan to tackle the escalating crimes, especially violent crimes throughout The Bahamas.  His statements confirmed the views of thousands of Bahamians and the FNM- that the Minister is ill suited for this job at this critical juncture and that the Christie led administration lack concrete plans that will impact crime reduction in the short to medium term.

Dr. Nottage and Prime Minister Christie failed to deliver the government’s account of its stewardship of National Security matters including crime management during the recent budget debate.  Given the high level of anxiety and fear among Bahamians and the frequent Crime Advisories issued by other countries whose citizens visit the Bahamas, the nation ...

At the end of the day, however, it is no laughing matter. In his continued attempts to label members of the Grand Bahama Human Rights Association (GBHRA) as disloyal to The Bahamas and guilty of defaming law enforcement officers, the minister is playing a very dangerous game.

Such unbalanced and misleading public comments are bound to spark unwarranted anger and hostility towards human rights defenders...
