The Dominica police force expresses concerns about the high number of unsolved murder cases
As concerns continue to mount over the Director of Public Prosecutions decision to withdraw charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder against Curtis ‘Shakes’ Richards of Newtown and Andy Prosper of Morne Prosper, Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Claude Weekes appealed to concerned citizens to understand the Constitution before making certain public statements.
Weekes, who addressed the matter after certain questions were posed to him, said that the case was withdrawn on reasonable grounds.
“I am sure that the Director of Public Prosecution examined all the circumstances surrounding the incident, before deciding to drop the charges against the two men,” assured a confident Weekes.
Richards and Prosper were remanded for a few weeks in 2009 for the murder of three (3) men at sea, after which they were granted bail in the sum of $500,000 at the Roseau High Court.
Meantime, while no leads are forthcoming in the murder investigation of Omari Small, better known as Munga Freeman of Goodwill, Inspector Weekes assured the public that the Dominica Police Force is in fact doing all in its power to mitigate the number of unsolved murders, in Dominica.
