    Finally some work is being done on that side. My plan was to charge the sum of US$100,000,00 to the airline every time a “client” arrive on BIM soil carrying drugs.

    ….and to think somebody had to tell those DUMB people in charge here that IF those in Jamaica do not Police their borders that WE could also take them to the CCJ for constantly allowing their nationals to leave Jamaica without proper screening..

    The airlines and other transportation carriers, have an obligation to police their vessels. Therefore, the same way they are held accountable for stowaways.
