Legal shenanigans have caused the sentencing of a man, who was unanimously convicted of a double murder, to be delayed by another five weeks.
The Christie Administration came to office exactly two years ago today with an ambitious and extensive legislative agenda to accomplish during its five year term and so far, little has been accomplished.
Days after three Bahamian men, accused of the attempted murder of a Canadian tourist, were acquitted of the charges, the visitor to The Bahamas has issued a warning to others seeking to vacation in the country.
While thousands of ordinary PLPs continue to languish, the wives, children, concubines, bastards, special interest groups and cronies have eaten the fat of the land.
In another glaring case of court shenanigans, the abetment to murder trial of Stephen “Die” Stubbs and another man was postponed until April 2016.
Despite a mandatory 4-year jail sentence for possession of drugs, a Bahamian judge gave a conditional discharge to a woman who was in possession of marijuana and cocaine – because she had personal problems and was “going through some things”.
Virtually every campaign promise Mr Christie made has been broken and every initiative the PLP has launched has failed.
If police admitted that the seven unclassified deaths were indeed murders, the crime statistics would jump from 39 deaths for the year to 46, setting the pace for a new murder record for 2014.
Three people were murdered in the space of 48 hours last week. Where is the help and hope that was promised to the people by this PLP government?
