Warner: Void on national landscape
Former national security minister Jack Warner is hoping that no effort will be spared in bringing the killers of Dana Seetahal, SC, to justice. In a press statement yesterday, the Independent Liberal Party leader said: “The brutal and brazen manner in which Ms Seetahal was executed is a jolting reminder of the tragic state of affairs in the country with regard to the crime situation and overall public safety.
“It is a reminder that there are very dangerous elements in our midst whose existence and activities we cannot continue to ignore or to take lightly. We hope that no effort would be spared in bringing the persons behind Ms Seetahal’s death to justice and that it will no longer be “business as usual” in dealing with the issues of the criminal justice system. Expressing condolences to Seetahal family, friends and the legal fraternity, Warner said Seetahal devoted her life to her profession and to service to her country.
Throughout her professional career, Warner said, she was one of the guiding lights whom the nation relied upon for leadership and direction on very controversial and critical issues. “She was known as a fearless and forthright individual who always stood for high standards,” he said, adding that her passing leaves a tremendous void in the national landscape, the extent of which is beyond description.
