Chairman of the Working Group on the National Consensus for Crime, Lloyd Distant, says despite the pandemic causing major delays in having a national consensus on crime, the Crime Summit’s expected by mid July.

This following a meeting today with Opposition Leader, Dr Peter Phillips and other stakeholder groups.

A meeting’s scheduled for later this week with the Prime Minister and his team to arrive at a consensus on crime.
