Jamaican drug courier held

A Jamaican woman will have to pay a fine of $50,000 forthwith or spend the next two years in prison here, following her conviction today on drug charges.

Donnarie Hibbert, 43, appeared at the Oistins Magistrates Court where she pleaded guilty to possession; possession with intent to supply; trafficking; and importation of two kilogrammes of cannabis.

Hibbert arrived by air from Jamaica on Thursday. After a police dog raised an alarm about her luggage, she was referred to Customs where four packages containing the illegal drugs were discovered.

She was therefore arrested and charged by members of the Drug Squad.

    I would like to know how these people are able to get through their home airports with the drugs then to come and present problems for another country. Damn nonsense.

    Send these criminals back where they come from. They are a burden on the tax payers of Barbados. You mean to tell me all this CARICOM nonsense and there is no extradition laws among the countries!!! What is the reason for the six-month stamp, who was the brains behind this? This loophole is causing the nuisances to wreak havoc.

    In another section of the media a Jamaican woman who just came here was in court for beating her lesbian lover who broke off with her and she was deported. Hallelujah
