Almost one week after police shot and killed illegal immigrant Norval Barrett in Windsor Park, George Town former acting Police Commissioner Anthony Ennis called for stiffer penalties for harbouring criminals.
Mr. Ennis joins a long line of people outraged on social media with people accommodating criminals in their domains with knowledge of illegal activities and criminal tendencies.
The former police commissioner said those who have and are willing to house known international criminals are hurting their own communities.
“We have the rule of law and people should respect the rule of law and if you’re gonna harbour criminals i mean you are also doing a disservice to your community and you are breaching one of the fundamental principles of the rule of law so i agree that penalties should be served as a deterrent to those who harbour criminals,” Mr. Ennis said.
The woman arrested for Harbouring Mr. Barrett has not yet been charged and is currently on police bail.
