Absence of forensic testing is affecting justice system, charges Symister, as results can determine one’s freedom or conviction

17

Attorney-at-law Leon Chaku Symister says the justice system is being negatively impacted by the Browne Administration’s failure to pay the regional labs at which forensic tests are conducted.

Symister says this situation affects the outcome of cases and can be unfair to accused persons.

He explains that not having forensic tests conducted can mean a matter of freedom or a conviction, and the Government has a duty to ensure that persons who stand accused are able to get a fair trial.

In this regard, the attorney says, the Browne Government continues to fail the State and the people of Antigua and Barbuda.

In another instance of failure, Symister refers to the lack of water at the Pathology Department on the Holberton Hospital compound, and he calls on Minister of Health Sir Molwyn Joseph to put things in place to correct the problem.

Meanwhile, Symister alleges that a certain civil servant was contacted to provide water so that post mortems can take place – since the Minister reportedly did not make any attempts to have the commodity trucked in.

  5. Emergency Medical Services were there attending to Ms. Barthley. There was blood on her neck. The detectives spoke with Bowen. He handed over to Sergeant Edwards a black PIETRO BERETTA .25 PISTOL which contained 8 rounds of ammunition. The police recovered a spent shell and other items from the scene of the incident. Bowen was detained.

  7. “Ms. Barthley, 22, was shot in the neck on Dec. 16 at Mr. Bowen’s office. The police said Mr. Bowen’s gun went off during a scuffle. Ms. Barthley was put on life support but died Tuesday of a heart attack, hospital officials said.”

  8. They heard what sounded like a firecracker. Shortly thereafter, Constable Charles went towards his vehicle which was parked in the vicinity of Bowen’s office. He saw Bowen sitting on the steps of the building which housed his office. He saw Ms. Barthley lying on the ground not far from his motor car.

  10. Once again Mr Lovell”drop the ball” as it relates to the charter flight from Nigeria. For a person whose political career was all about “Pan Africanism and African Liberation,it was shameful and disappointing.Rather than capitalizing on this opportunity,if he forms the next Government,he resorted to insults,stereotyping,tropes of our Africans brothers and sisters.Shame !Shame!Shame! Africans came calling but becausing they didn’t fit the profiles of the North American or European tourists,you spat in their faces with insults describing them as un desirables who hang out in Lagos.A miss opportunity to show statesmanship and ability to lead Antigua/Barbuda.

      WHERE WAS YOUR DAM PM AND CUTIE TO SHOW LEADERSHIP? THEY WERE ALL CONSPICIOUSLY ABSENT, BUT YOU WANT LOVELL TO TAKE LEADERSHIP WHEN HE ALREADY WARNED THEM OF THEIR FOLLY.

      LOVELL A NA THE PM, FOOL

  11. The inadequacies of of Police and medical facilities are legendary, it is just not a priority , roads and God know what else comes first. Antigua was uninhabited by the Indigenous people because it had no water. You would think by now every body should know well enough not to construct or rent houses without adequate water suppy . Cistern or tanks should be a priority. The government that allowed the Desalination plants to rest and go to ruin (UPP) they are at fault

  12. harold loveLIE ??? surely you remember what Natalia Querard of HMB Holding had to say about harold loveLIE
