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

This petition had 3,847 supporters

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.
