AG wants EU help with gun problem in region

Social Share

THE CARIBBEAN REGION is “under siege” and Attorney General Adriel General Adriel Brathwaite is looking for overseas help in dealing with the problem.

During his address at the opening of a three-day workshop on Arms Trade Treaty Implementation Support this morning, Brathwaite said gun crimes were a significant challenge for all the territories and called on the European Union, which is facilitating the sessions, to help with solutions.

Staff of the Customs and Immigration Departments and the Royal Barbados Police Force are participating in the workshop and Brathwaite said he was hoping to see more meaningful interventions to the reckless use of firearms. (YB)
