A simple observation. After the murder of Dana Seetahal, an entire “nation” mourns. Suddenly, senior officials are recommending certain actions be taken to protect and to comfort attorneys and judges. Mr S Panday also recommended much more than protection and an increase in salary. However, when a prison officer is murdered, investigations seem to last just two days. Even granting prison officers firearms has been debated endlessly. I lament this biased behaviour on the part of our “senior officials”.
