Police not dealing with noise nuisance in Charity

Dear Editor,

An ongoing noise nuisance emanating from a hotel and bar affects me and many others in Charity, Region 2, just under the nose of the police station there. Some measure of relief is only shown on Mondays during the sitting of the Magistrate’s court located on the other side of the public road.

It can be verified that several reports were made at the police station and statements taken from the affected persons, all of whom expressed the desire for the perpetrator to be charged with the offence of noise nuisance and placed before the court. All of us have indicated our willingness to attend court to give the evidence, but for some reason best known to the police, this line of action is not being followed.
The failure of the police to have the culprit face prosecution, which is the only possible deterrent, is not just baffling but also questionable. The evidence needed by the police is overwhelming and prosecution should be seen not as a favour but as a duty. Unless the law is enforced when a violation occurs, criminal activities will not be suppressed.

An officer at the station even advised me to see the Divisional Commander, which I did, only to learn that he had received information that some ranks had visited my location while the music was on and from their observations, it did not measure up to a nuisance. No rank never visited my location so this seems to be yet another presumptious cover-up.

Yours faithfully,
Govind Nauth

Rasul’s vote for parking meter contract a betrayal of Team Benschop

Dear Editor, In response to a few queries concerning the questionable voting by Sunil Rasul, who has cast his personal vote in support of the parking meter contract, I wish to make it pellucidly clear that Rasul has been occupying the council seat illegally since November of 2017, and without the support of Team Benschop.
