Letter: Should AG Anand relent?

In Europe and America, the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (Nazi Party) remains the unrivalled symbol of totalitarian rule within the last 100 years. Locally, the same can be argued about the People’s National Movement (PNM).

Paradoxically, fuelled by its ruthless desire to dominate, the Nazi Party, while it ruled, did encourage and effect several innovations which improved the quality of life. Locally, the same can be said of the PNM.

However, it was only after the Nazis were defeated that the horrendous scale of their depravity became known and everyone realized Nazism was a virually a plague. Locally, the PNM’s sad history is being unfurled since its May 2010 removal.

Their extensive, atrocious misconduct is what, to this day, has subjected surviving Nazis to being relentlessly pursued, wherever they may be, even though some of them went to great lengths to avoid detection or protest they didn’t plunder anything. For the same reason, worldwide, the same fate must befall the PNM.

From ever since, the Simon Wiesenthal Foundation, unquestioned guardian of Nazi victims’ interests, has been the primary instrument trying to pry out the Nazi culprits from their hiding places, in order for them to face their deserved fate. Locally, the Attorney General is the recognized guardian of the public’s interest.

Mr Anand Ramlogan must continue to go after those who wreaked havoc when they governed.

Should Anand relent? 
Whatever innocent pretence or red herrings those of the past administration may be now sporting, I don't think he should.
