Constitutional Affairs Minister, Marlene Malahoo-Forte, says the right to life is greater than that of liberty.

She was referencing the recent ruling by the Constitutional Court which found sections of the 2018 emergency powers regulations a breach of fundamental rights and freedoms.

Malahoo-Forte was reacting to Tuesday’s murder of Ms. Wright and her four children.

She says the constant bloodletting across the nation is leaving very little space for reflection.

She says while some will look poorly on her referencing the judgement it’s important to note that without the right to life no other right can be enjoyed.
