Dear Editor,

If the stories being carried about the St James lotto scammers are proved true by the courts, what examples are being set for the young generation to follow? No matter their position, no one is above the law and due punishment must be given.

People in high positions, especially, and the older and wiser must act responsibly so that our youth have good examples to follow.
