The Commission has asserted ‘that the incidences of violence against women, including rape, shootings, molestations and other forms of abuse, are on the rise in the country’.

The National Commission on Crime Prevention offers its condolences to the family, friends and community of Fitz Hughes. The NCCP considers it ‘a brutal and unwarranted attack on a senior citizen’.

The NCCP is “concerned that such violence will affect and traumatize our women and hamper the growth of future generations”. The NCCP will continue to educate citizens on non- violent ways and means of resolving conflict.

The Department is satisfied that the ‘relevant authorities will continue to address and tackle violence, and will relentlessly pursue people committing such crimes,’ with an effort to, in the shortest possible time, restore the peace and tranquility of our blessed land.
