A Maryland Representative has called on government to release or send to court his kinsmen being held in detention in connection with ritualistic killing.

Representative Bhofal Chambers said it was wrong to continue to hold his people in jail without any formal charge or trial.

He stressed it not healthy for a witch doctor or traditional detective to brand people as ritualistic killers without any fact.

Representative Chambers argued it was ironical for big names in the alleged ritual act in Maryland to be released while the small names are being held.

The Pleeblo-Sodoken District-two lawmaker made the statement Friday during a press conference at the Legislature.

Representative Chambers also repeated claims of slavery at the Cavalla Rubber Plantation in Maryland with nine year old kids being used as rubber tappers.

He further protested the presence of the French agro group SIFCA at the Decoris Oil Palm, describing their operations as illegal and an economic injustice.
