Member of Parliament for the Wesley constituency, Ezekiel Bazil has condemned the killing of Brazilian National, Rose Wyatt, 51, on Sunday.
Bazil told Dominica News Online (DNO) on Tuesday these criminals must be stopped and, “it’s time for us to stop them now.”
“It is rather an unfortunate situation here which occurred in the north-east of the island. I want to totally condemn such hideous and gruesome crime committed against any one individual,” he said. “It’s time that our people come to the realization that they are hurting surviving family members and by extension they are actually hurting our own community.”
He appealed to the general public from the neighbouring communities to provide the police with any information that could assist in bringing those responsible to justice.
“I am also appealing to the police: leave no stone unturned…,” he remarked. “We must bring these criminals under control.”
Bazil called on the religious leaders to continue to pray for the community, victims and the perpetrators, “because they all need prayers.”
The body of Wyatt, an hotelier was found about 6:00 pm lying in a footpath which leads to Hodges Beach in an area between Calibishie and Woodfordhill.
National Security Minister, Rayburn Blackmoore has revealed that a suspect is in police custody in connection with the crime.
