INDECOM Boss Wants Justice Ministry Budget Doubled

181

Commissioner of the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) Terrence Williams, is calling for a doubling the budget for the Ministry of Justice.

Mr. Williams says the Ministry of Justice only receives one-tenth of the funds allocated to their counterparts at the Ministry of National Security.

According to Williams, the vast discrepancy between the resources at the Ministries of Justice and National Security, results in a bottleneck at the courts.

He says many murder cases are solved quickly by the police, but take very long to be prosecuted.

The Commissioner says the slow pace of justice also results in suspected criminals being more likely to get bail.

National Security Minister Robert Montague recently raised concerns about the number of persons committing other crimes while out on bail.
