    Corruption is corruption , how deep in the sh1t matters not . You live by your own conscience! The Devil walks among us . For ever wrong people cannot keep laying the blame at someone or something else’s door . The devil wins that way . It’s up to people to own their own conscience!!

      In other words pay back the money in bail you walk out and we all good. So why put him though the process of public shaming if bail is what he is alleged to have stolen

    One thing you can say about this Government,”every man for himself”. This fella will be the “fall guy” and it done there. What about the bogus number plates on the vehicles on the roads. The number plate makers should have to report every plate they make to the Ministry of transport and pay VAT. Such collection of funds must not fall by the wayside like the collection of VAT from employers who won’t pay for workers. Better policing methods must be put in place so that government can collect the funds.
