St Lucia’s reputation as a tourism destination is taking a major hit, as a video featuring British Nationals who were victims of unsolved crimes, makes the rounds on social media.

The videos entail accounts from at three individuals who have been identified as Margaret Pratt, Anne Pearson and Georgina.

Margaret Pratt is the wife of Roger Pratt who was murdered in an attack aboard their yacht in Vieux Fort on January 22nd 2014. Also featured in the video is Anne Pearson who recounts details of her mother’s murder almost 6 years ago. Georgina claims that she was violently raped while on vacation in St Lucia in February 2016.

The crimes which are being investigated by local police remain unsolved to date, despite what the victims claim was strong evidence that could positively point to the perpetrators.

Local police have also been heavily criticized for shoddy investigation techniques, that the victims believe may have damaged their case.

So far there has been no word from the hierarchy of the Royal St Lucia Police Force regarding the allegations being made about law enforcement’s handling of the cases.
