The Home Affairs Minister continues to point out the widely accepted belief that killing squads were formed and allowed to function under the then Home Affairs Minister, Ronald Gajraj, who has now been posted on a diplomatic mission to India.
Despite Gajraj's denial of no wrong doing, Rohee continues to add credibility to the existence of the squads, which were responsible for a number of deaths and dissaperances. Global lessons good for dunce. Any Government would take note that the former Bosnian Serb leader,who is before the tribunal for charges of genocide and crimes against humanity.
SN Editorial: Minister of Home Affairs Mr Clement Rohee seems to have reached a fork in the road. One route leads forward to improved human security and public safety. The other leads backward to more extra-judicial killings and torture.
