PM condemns church robbery

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has condemned the robbery of Roman Catholic priest Father Clyde Harvey at a Belmont church early on Monday.

In a statement, Rowley said the attack on the Roman Catholic priest by “able-bodied, gun-toting men sadly represents the worst that exists within our communities”.

The Prime Minister expressed his disappointment as he said that in spite of the difficulties some may face, “there are limits beneath which the human form should not sink”.

He noted, however, that there are people who have chosen criminal conduct as a way of life, but such persons, regardless of their circumstances, should be condemned in the strongest terms.

“These miscreants have parents and I hope that somewhere in this country today there are a few parents who are hanging their heads in shame as they reflect in private as to what more they might have done to prevent any of our citizens from behaving in this despicable way,” the Prime Minister added.
