Nassau, Bahamas: Andre Milne director of ASOVE a human rights organization out of Canada has written to the Secretary of the Cabinet addressing concerns to recent death threats against the life of Omar Archer.
In a letter to Anita Bernard Director Milne said, “I am formally asking you to advise me as to why no action is being taken to arrest the man currently on bail for clearly violating his bail conditions to have no direct or indirect contact of Omar Archer?”
Milne letter continued, “Should any harm come to the person of Omar Archer, you personally will be held liable and or culpable for negligence of duty and shall be submitted as such to the Director of United Nations Human Rights for disposition by the Geneva authority in accordance with UN standards.
“I strongly suggest you give this your immediate attention,” he said.
Last year an attacker shot Archer in the Nassau Village area public view. His attacker has since awarded bail only 6 weeks after being arraigned on the matter. The trial has yet to come to head. Meanwhile, the attempted murder walks free committing additional threats to Archer since his bail hearing.
Archer told Bahamas Press, “I reported [the matter] to the central police station that same day [date of his release] and nothing has been done about it. I sent a letter to the judge and prosecutor about what occurred, and still nothing. On Saturday January 3rd, I passed him [the shooter] on the street driving in opposite directions, guess what, He [the attempted murder now on bail] turned around and began to follow me,” Archer said.
In a press statement to Bahamas Press ASOVE director charged that the motive behind the attempted assassination on Archer is as a direct result of Archer’s efforts and noted that they were economically and politically motivated by members of the Bahamian judicial system,” the press statement said.
“ASOVE deems that the life and safety of Mr. Omar Archer is still in danger by elements of corruption at the highest levels of the Bahamian Government.
“ASOVE has confirmed that the failure of the Bahamian Government to direct the Bahamian Police to immediately arrest and imprison the man who shot Mr. Omar Archer for repeatedly following and texting messages, contrary to the bail conditions, is clear evidence of the Bahamian Government’s criminal accessory to the man who shot Mr. Archer,” Malin said.
