The Turks and Caicos is becoming unrecognizable to at least one politician; Opposition Leader Sharlene Robinson said as much in her statement last night after news broke of Yuniery’s murder.
“Providenciales and Turks and Caicos Islands are losing their identity and are not what we knew them to be. We accept that things can and will change with expansion in population and other areas of development but there are certain things that we cannot and must not accept and these type of crimes can never be allowed to become commonplace in our societies.” Hon. Robinson who comments regularly on the escalating level of violent crime spoke out too as a woman, ”I condemn this act against this young woman and call on all women to exercise great caution recognizing that women have fallen prey to violent and deadly crimes in recent history.”
Hon Robinson added to her remarks, a plea for the public to help the police in solving crime, a plea for powers that be to provide the TCI Police Force with requisite resources and the reminder of the PDM’s 12 point plan for fighting crime.
