Minister Samuda Condemns Brutal Killing of Gabriel King



Ministry of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Karl Samuda is condemning the recent brutal killing of nine-year-old Gabriel King as an evil and cowardly act against persons with disabilities.

According to Minister Samuda, the news of Gabriel’s killing is deeply mortifying, and is a direct attack on the lives of promising Jamaicans from the disabled community. Happening at a time, when the government is intensifying its efforts to put systems in place to safeguard the lives and rights of persons with disabilities.

“I am expressing my deepest condolences to the family and the community of young Gabriel, I am calling on persons to come forward and give information to the police so that those responsible can be held accountable for their actions”. Minister Samuda said.
