Dear Editor,

The name of one official behind the death squad is being revealed, and I am not surprised.

I do believe that an investigation should be conducted, and if there is evidence supporting Mr. Bacchus's allegation the official should resign, and face criminal charges.

The members of the phantom squad should face charges, and given the death penalty if found guilty, or better yet give the main phantom members amnesty in exchange for all they know of the group and its handlers, their operations, and all the persons who hired them to terminate human lives.

The establishment of a death squad to terminate criminals in a society is wrong, and violates the human rights of the criminals irrespective of the crimes they have committed.

Yours faithfully,

Y. Adonis
