Justice for Brenton Hector Smith
Petition Background (Preamble):
The police have stated that they have turned over the details of their investigation to the Coroner's Court. However, there has not been a date set for the Coroner's Inquest into Brenton's death. The Coroner's Inquest will provide the facts and details surrounding Brenton's death.
We recognize that there are outstanding cases before the Attorney General's Office. However, given the fact that Brenton was shot by a police officer, without having posed a threat to the officer, and given the state of crime on New Providence and the necessity to maintain public confidence in the RBPF, we are asking AG Symonette to fast track the Coroner's Inquest into Brenton's death. Ultimately, as the details and truth is revealed in the Coroner's Inquest, actions can then be taken to ensure that what happened to Brenton does not happen again.
We ask that a date be set without delay for the Coroner's Inquest into the death of Brenton Hector Smith.
