The death of soldier Pablo Kinch is getting the attention of Minister of Home Affairs Wilfred Abrahams.

Yesterday, two days after Kinch was buried following his shooting in April, Abrahams said he was not impressed with the state of the investigation into the death of the lance corporal.

Police launched an investigation into the death of 26-year-old Kinch while he was on the compound of the District “A” Police Station on April 6 with three colleagues from the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) after returning from a joint patrol. He was buried on Friday.

During the annual general meeting of the Barbados Labour Party’s Christ Church East branch yesterday, Abrahams said he was going to do everything in his power to expedite the investigation and bring closure to Kinch’s family. (CA)
