My statement on the murder of Nixon Cua

We are deeply saddened by the killing of Mr. Nixon Cua. The circumstances surrounding his death reveals that we still have a lot of work ahead to ensure that criminality, lawlessness and disrespect for our laws is stamped out.

We reiterate our position that criminality and lawlessness will be significantly reduced only if there is swift punishment and conviction of the guilty in a functioning and effective justice system. Putting fear in the hearts of would-be criminals is the best deterrent to crime, and this can only be done when the guilty are punished swiftly and resolutely.
