Attorney-at-Law, Clyde Williams, has welcomed the new guidelines issued by the National Security Ministry to deal with persons in lock ups for minor offences. However, he's pushing for a specific policy for minor ganja-related offences. His proposal comes in the wake of the death of Mario Deane after being beaten at the Barnett Street Police Station. Mr Williams argues that guidelines are a good start, but more should be done until the relevant legislation is changed. The proposal would involve warnings for minor quantities, rather than incarceration and court proceedings.
