Founder of the Association of Community based Organisations of Westmoreland, Mathais Brown, says the opposition People’s National Party, PNP, made a mistake in not voting for an extension of the States of Public Emergency.

According to Mr. Brown, after patrolling the communities and speaking to residents, that’s the general consensus.

He says people are disappointed there won’t be an extension.

According to him the decision by the PNP will have major implications on the country’s crime situation.

He is asking if not SOEs, then what?
