Thursday,  June 18, 2009 –  Prime Minister Honourable Stephenson king returned to the island Tuesday this week following a visit to the United Kingdom where he held important discussions with the Attorney General of the United Kingdom Rt. Hon the Baroness Scotland QC. Prime Minister King also attended the “trouping the colours” ceremony as guest of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.


The Prime Minister also addressed  Saint Lucian nationals in the UK as part of activities to mark the island’s thirtieth anniversary of independence.


Prime Minister King who was continually kept abreast with local developments, including the upsurge in gang violence, immediately convened a meeting on June 17, of a Committee of Cabinet, the management of the Royal Saint Lucia Police force and key Government officials.


Meanwhile, at that meeting Prime Minister King was briefed by National Security Minister Senator Guy Mayers and Police Commissioner Ausbert Regis on security measures which have been implemented to arrest the current surge in criminal activity.


Prime Minister King in reassuring the public that his administration is taking the necessary steps to bring an immediate halt to the current situation,  indicated that “Saint Lucia while having to deal with the current global economic situation and the North American virus, cannot afford to be burdened by criminal activity”. The Prime Minister vowed to leave “no stone unturned” in addressing the crime situation.
