KINGSTOWN, SVG (BreadFruit News) Tension is brewing in the Richmond Hill, Kingstown community as Dr Wayne Murray has today stated he will “protect his family by any means necessary” even after yesterday’s ‘invitation’ by the Commissioner of Police to diffuse the situation.
Dr Murray said today in a Facebook post:
“Yesterday I was arrested and detained for a day by the police and released without charge. I was visited by four CID officers who arrested me at my clinic whilst attending to patients and took me to the central station.”
He cited a post made on his Facebook page which threatened to kill as the reason he was hauled to the CID. This threat presumably was meant for the tenants who he claimed are exercising rights over land he and his family have rented to them.
The post which reportedly caused police officers to act contained the following:
“Notice to the Commissioner of Pilice [sic] and Prime Minister!!
When I one kill of these people on this property it would be in your watch!!! [sic]
I am telling you now that I will be putting persons down from today!!!”
He said that since the government intervention to acquire land belonging to the family, the tenants have been emboldened to steal from their home. In a recent post, he claims, “I spoke to the Prime Minister and told him to clean his mess as the security of my family is in question. He sent Officials from the police and surveys department to speak to the tenants BUT seemingly they have a higher authority so the actions continues”.
He promised to continue to defend his family by any means necessary.
