DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER Freundel Stuart has called for calm in the wake of Friday night’s tragic events in Tudor Street, The City.“Intelligence available to the Royal Barbados Police Force suggests that a basis exists for a high level of optimism that this crime will be solved sooner rather than later, and that the perpetrators will be ferreted out and brought to justice with haste,” Attorney General Stuart said in a statement issued late yesterday.He added: “While the country is obviously numbed by this blood-curdling atrocity, I urge all to remain calm as the situation is being maturely managed.” On behalf of the Government, he also extended “heartfelt condolences” to relatives and friends of the six women “whose lives were cruelly shortened by the heartless perpetrators of this horrible misdeed”.“This crime reflects features quite unfamiliar to Barbadians and indicates that we cannot afford to ignore the novel, and unsettling types of behaviour which are creeping onto our social landscape,” Stuart said.
