The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange has issued the following statement:

“The killing of Mrs Erroline Chin in Heywood, St Mary is the latest in a series of brutal acts of violence against women and girls in our country.

I express my most sincere condolences to Mrs Chin’s family and to the entire Heywood District where she was a highly respected member of the
community.

These acts of brutality against our women and girls must stop. They are unacceptable and we must do all we can to ensure that the perpetrators are caught and punished under the law. Therefore, if you have any information about this or any other crime, please make a report to the police.

Let’s be clear about it: this evil will flourish if good men and women do and say nothing. It is time to take a stand against violence. No more cover up. Break the silence.”
