Elric Philo Wallace family has successfully obtained a license from the The Royal St. Kitts and Nevis Police Force to stage a march today, Friday, November 20th through which they will lobby authorities to ensure justice for 17 year old Philo described as a promising cricketer by many.
Philo was allegedly murdered in cold blood at a Nevis bar by a police officer on October 17, 2015 at around 3.45 a.m. He was allegedly shot in the chest.
The march will commence at Lime(Flow) office near Scotia Bank. Participants will stop at the police station. They will proceed to the Elquemedo Willet Park which is near the bar where Philo met his gruesome death.
The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis has asked the Director of Public Prosecution to advise them on the direction to take in regard to two shootings where police officers are implicated.
In one shooting, a Security Guard, Steadroy Sutton was allegedly shot while on duty by a police officer. In this shooting, the DPP came personally to the Magistrate’s court on Tuesday this week and dismissed charges where police had accused Sutton of beating the police officer.
Concerning Philo’s shooting, the DPP has ordered a Coroner’s Inquest.
