Work is continuing to identify those responsible and bring them to justice.   Overnight a person has been arrested for robbery and another person is in custody for an offence of burglary. These arrests are not connected to the shooting of the visitor to the Island in the early hours of Friday morning but reflect the hard work that the officers of the RT&CIPF are undertaking to keep their community safe.With regards to the shooting of the visitor, the victim remains in a serious condition and his family are being supported by officers from the Serious Crime Team of the RT&CIPF.Acting Commissioner of Police Trevor Botting said this morning;   “The shooting of the visitor to the Turks and Caicos Islands is condemned and my team are working tirelessly to identity those responsible and bring them to Justice.   I know this incident will cause concern in the community.    The Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force have increased their visible presence in the areas of Grace Bay but also in other areas of the Islands. However, my officers need the support of the community.We need information as to who is carrying out these crimes and causing such harm to those who live, work and visit the Islands.   We also need people to tell us about anything or anyone suspicious, if you see something tell us so we can check it out.   We need our communities’ eyes and ears to help us keep the Islands safe. I have spoken to partners within the Tourist Industry this morning and we are committed to working together to keep people safe.I would ask that people remain alert and vigilant but not alarmed. Sensible precautions should be taken when walking around the Island late in the evening. These include walking together in groups and where possible not carrying more valuables than you need to and making use of safes and security measures where possible.I would be grateful for the public’s support and patience if they are delayed at all through the increase in policing. If you are concerned, speak to my officers, they are here to serve, support and assist you. My officers are working hard to keep you safe and we will use all available tools and tactics to prevent offences and bring those who seek to commit crime to justice. ”Press Release: RTCIPF#TCIpoliceupdates Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#TCIpoliceupdateslast_img read more

This is Her story

first_imgThe multi-faceted and impactful story of HeLa has been brought to India by QTP as part of its 15th anniversary celebrations.HeLa has been inspired by the book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, and is about ethics, equality and ownership of our DNA and will pose a question: ‘What is more human – the DNA that make up our bodies or the personalities that come from our souls?’ It is a true story of Henrietta Lacks, who in 1951 walked into the coloured section of the John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore with a pain in her abdomen. A cell sample taken without her permission was used as the raw material for some of the most important scientific discoveries of the past 100 years. This solo, one-woman show by actor Adura Onashile, takes as its inspiration the true life story of Henrietta Lacks and the extraordinary life of the HeLa cell line. It is an all-consuming story, intertwining genetic identity, social responsibility and current ethical debates about human tissue research and ownership. Directed by Graham Eatough, performed by actor Adura Onashile, HeLa is produced by Iron-Oxide, Scotland’s leading large-scale companies that specialises in producing daring outdoor shows. HeLa is a fusion of video, music, monologue and physicality.The play was showcased at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013 and ran to packed houses. HeLa was nominated for numerous Fringe Awards and also won the Flying Artichoke Award (Scottish Arts Club-Edinburgh Guide-Scottish Theatre Fringe Award). It also received nominations for Total Theatre Award 2013 and Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2013.last_img read more
