Police not budging on decision to deny PAM march

No to PAM march

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN):  The Police High Command is sticking to its decision to deny permission for a planned march on Wednesday to protest the long delay in Parliament debating a Motion of Confidence in the government filed since December. 

People's Action Movement Leader Shawn Richard has served notice that he will march on Wednesday and the Party Chairman Cyndie Demming has declared that women will walk through the streets of Basseterre in prayer Wednesday afternoon. 

Speaking on behalf of the Commissioner Tuesday, Assistant Commissioner Ian Queeley said that there had been no change in regard to permission to march.

The Commissioner of Police had told WINN FM last week, that permission was denied because the police's resources were stretched too thin during the week of the Music Festival.

Tuesday WINN FM asked ACP Queeley to comment on the fact, that though the PAM had been denied permission to march on Wednesday, the day before the Festival began, the Child Month march would be held on Friday, right in the middle of the three-day event.

"Resource issues would always be of concern, and it is the prerogative of the Commoner not to give all the information he has at his disposal," Queeley responded.

"If the Commissioner so chooses, I want us as a people of the Federation to be mature, and understand that everything as to be done in context, and as such I believe the request was reviewed, and based on the information available, that's why the Commissioner gave that response, becasue of the resource requirement. There may be a need for other...implications that were not and cannot be made available to them."

Mr. Queeley declared that police offers will not flinch from their duty to uphold the law

"I'm not  a politician.  Mr. Richards and they are politicians.  I'm a policeman and...my job is to uphold the law and if the law is being broken...the police will have to deal with any breaches of the law.  That is my position on that matter," the Assistant Commissioner said.
