Say NO to the Release of Convicted Killer "James Murray"...

      Curacao

On May 23rd 1979, a 6 years old sweet an innocent girl “Darley Lai” was brutally assaulted and murdered by a close family friend “James Murray”; although, this cold-blooded killer was then convicted to a maximum sentence of life in prison, a new Curaco Criminal Code (Nieuw Wetboek van Strafrecht Curaçao) has been introduced on November 15, 2011, which stipulates in Article 1:30 that a person sentenced to Life in Prison and after serving 20 years of its sentence has the right to appeal the judgment and have the Superior Court of Justice determine if the convicted person could regain its conditional freedom.

Given that James Murray has already served more than 20 years of its sentence (without displaying any sign of remorse), he now qualifies to have his Life Sentence revoke by the Superior Court of Justice and in this way regain his freedom.

A criminal like Murray can never be release free given that in the past he has threaten the grieving family, has assaulted several inmates and has also been clinically diagnosed as a psychopath due to his lack of remorse, and due to his disregard for the rights of others (in prison and on the streets) and for his indifference to the rules of society. In other words, if released from prison, a high probability exists that James Murray can commit a similar brutal crime in the future.

Please sign this online petition and join us in demanding that James Murray serves his Life Sentence as originally convicted and help us keep our streets and children safe…..

Forever Grateful,

- Family of Darley Lai -

September 06 is the new date that has been stipulated by Curacao’s Superior Criminal Court of Justice to review James Murray’s case.

    4. James Murray Debate on Human Rights !!!

      by Y Z
      Petition Organizer

      James Murray and his lawyers wrongly believe that James is entitled to exercise his Humans’ Rights; however, WE, Darley’s family believe that James renounced to his Humans’ Rights the minute that he decided to disregard Darley’s rights to live a happy “young” and “adult” life.

      One of the considerations that the judges will contemplate is how the family and the general public perceive this particular issue, will also review James’ behavior and mental condition, and obviously the opinion of the common citizens; in other words, is the public “against” or “pro” James release? Therefore, by signing this petition your signature will be tally "against" James Murray's freedom.

      Please, we now plead your support to help us acquire the necessary awareness and signatures. We also ask that you share this petition link with your family and friends and also post this link on your Facebook and Twitter pages.

      We thank you in advanced for helping us keep these type of monsters in prison.

    5. The New Court Case will be September 06, 2012

      Petition Organizer

      On September 06, the Curacao’s Superior Criminal Court of Justice will review James Murray’s case and will decide if James Murray’s should obtain his conditional freedom. James’ lawyers are taking advantage of a small breach on the new legislation (approved on November 2011) to request that their client be granted pardon on his life sentence and instead granted a Conditional Freedom; however, Darley’s family and our community in general, believes that James Murray must continue to serve his Life Sentence in prison without opportunity for parole as to assure the safety of our children and the well-being of our society.

    6. A Background on James Murray:

      James Murray a premeditated-cold-blooded criminal that has never shown any remorse for brutally raping and stabbing 8 times, 6 years old Darley Lai. Thirty Three years ago, Darley’s aunt was involved in an abusive relationship with James. Nevertheless, one day, she found the courage to end this foul-relation; James, (aware that Darley was her only niece), as a form of retaliation, mislead one of his own female cousin asking her to pick Darley up from school with the excuse that he needed to take the little girl to a doctor’s appointment, he then took innocent and trusting Darley to a remote an isolated area, where he brutally raped and stabbed 8 times this innocent child that he knew so well.

      Two years prior to this incident, James also raped a 15 year old girl, and while serving his life sentence in the Prison of Curacao, James assaulted and tried to rape several of his inmates, therefore James had to be transferred to the prison of Aruba.

      I am a adult who still suffers every day from child abuse. Though I survived, I wished every day of my life for death and still do! This abuse was not as severe as "Darley Lai's" abuse! Darley Lai still has a voice because of us "The Survivor's of abuse" and supporter's all around! James Murray should never be released, have conditional freedom, to prey on other little children! James Murray is right where he belongs and must stay this way! I know "Darley Lai" would feel this way, if she had survived!

      Het recht moet zegevieren. De wet is daartoe 'n middel, geen doel en zeker geen excuus. Sterkte voor de familie van het slachtoffer en mijn diepste respect voor de familie Murray die de rechtvaardigheid steunt!!
