Moreen’s mother, who was supposed to speak after the march, was unable to do so. She suffered from ailments. For a year “she hasn’t been living well”, said one of her relatives, “Moreen was her princess”.

This story is reminiscent of the so-called “T-Max scooter” that occurred in Providence at Les Abymes on August 8th. The man who struck and seriously injured a 4-year-old child has now been sentenced to 18 months in prison. This case was heard under an immediate appearance procedure.

This is not the case with Moreen in the accident that caused my death.

A court case is being investigated

After a witness call, two suspects were arrested a dozen days after the fatal crash and hit-and-run. The police managed to arrest the suspected driver and passenger.
