    There is a lot more work yet to be done because some of the immigration and custom officials are culpable of improprieties and irregularities as well. These officials are profiling individuals because those individuals dress or fit within the purview of certain stereotypical characteristics must cease.

    Pilots and air hostesses for years have been bringing drugs into the Country simply because they hardly or don’t go through Customs at all .Obviously this hostess was set up
    Customs have been aiding and abetting the drug dealers and gun dealers for years now.Any body who works at the Airport can attest to that.
    Line crew men and security guards at the gates are in it too.
    If the authorities are serious,they would change the rosters of those people at the last minute when certain flights arrive so that friends won’t be on duty when friends arrive

    Drugs just can’t come in without the help of people . What Barbados should do is Put a heavy fined on the Country from where the person(s) came from. Every port I know of do have SECURITY so how can a person get on a plane or ship without being CHECKED.
