Jamaican sleuths probing alleged extra judicial killings by St Lucia cops

(Jamaica Gleaner) A team of Jamaican police investigators is now in St Lucia conducting an independent probe into alleged extra judicial killings by members of the St Lucia police dating back to 2010.

The United States had used the incident to cut back on aid to St Lucia.

St Lucia’s National Security Minister Phillip La Corbiniere says assistance from Washington would remain suspended until the inquiry is held.

In August, the United States officially informed the St Lucia government that Washington had suspended aid to the police as a result of allegations of serious human rights violations.
