TCI Crime Spike Potential Natl. Security Threat, Min. Suggests

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Munroe suggests the crime issue in TCI is a threat to The Bahamas, as he hit back at criticism from the FNM. 





NASSAU, BAHAMAS – National Security Minister Wayne Munroe again defending the decision to deploy Bahamian police officers to the Turks and Caicos Islands. Munroe suggests the crime issue there is a threat to The Bahamas, as he hit back at criticism from the FNM. 

“We are sufficiently concerned as to whether or not it is impacting The Bahamas.”

That was the national security minister’s response when asked if the crime situation in the Turks and Caicos is a national security threat to The Bahamas.

Wayne Munroe’s comments come after twenty police officers were deployed to TCI last week. 

Munroe says the officers are all from the intelligence branch of the Royal Bahamas Police Force. 

Munroe also hitting back at the Free National Movement leader Michael Pintard, who in a statement called the recent deployment distinctly different. 

Pintard contends the Davis administration is struggling to address the bloodshed in the country, adding that the administration is slow and weak in explaining the overall plan for crime prevention. 

To that, Munroe said, “We have for national security reasons not been explicit.”

Munroe, however, gives the assurance that The Bahamas’ national interest is being addressed in The Bahamas.
