    Barbados must start charging a BDS$10.000.00 fee to the Air Carrier every time a passenger come to its shores caring DRUGS.
    These persons just cannot WALK through security at no air port with DRUGS without being HELP.

      And how would the airline know that its customer is carrying illegal drugs??
      Should the airline do a body cavity search and x-ray of all customers?

    This happening too darn often now. Something needs to be done about this crap.

    Does the treaty of chagauramus support this??? I would like the government of Barbados to take these brutes to the CCJ and recover the tax payers money for housing these Jamaican criminals.

    What is the Jamaican government saying about the number of their nationals coming into other caribbean countries with drugs? Then they get vex when you have to send these people back where they come from.
