Apparently the latest victim of a violent crime was a taxi driver shot in the "hotel area". The suspects have been arrested, but naturally have not yet gone to trial so we do not know if they are guilty or innocent.
I will remind everyone, that just because you see cameras does not mean that they are in use. I found the quote below interesting as well. Under pressure I suppose it is easy for the Minister to spread the blame around by also accusing the hotels of not doing enough.
"It is lamentable that most hotels that usually try to save more money on security measures by not installing security cameras to protect their property and not hiring enough employees in the security department are the first one to come out and complain when crime rates go up."
