Jamaican man to spend 12 months at Dodds

 

 

Jamaican national Deorian Orlando Duhaney will spend 12 months at Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds after pleading guilty to several drug related offences.

Duhaney appeared before Magistrate Laurie-Ann Smith-Bovell in the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ court today charged with possession of cannabis, possession with intent to supply, trafficking cannabis, and importation of cannabis.

The 40-year-old man arrived here on Monday, January 26, from his homeland via Trinidad.

After clearing immigration he was interviewed by police and then referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he passed out 47 taped packages containing cannabis.

The drugs weighed 0.5 pounds and have an estimated street value of $2000.

Duhaney was fined $4000 forthwith or 12 months in prison for trafficking. The fine was not paid.

He was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the remaining offences.

    Why can’t our Attorney General, request the Jamaica Government and the Airlines flying into Barbados to check their passengers for possession of drugs and other illegal objects before they arrive at our Airport.

    The same way we can detect drugs on or in these passengers at our Airport, it can be done before they leave to come here.

    This foolishness is costing poor Barbadian Tax payers, thousands of their hard earned money to feed and house, these drug mules when the problem can be detected at is source of origen.

    HOW STUPID ARE WE AS BARBADIANS????? WHERE IS OUR GOVERNMENT CONCERN FOR OUR FINANCES???

    Could some one tell me why after all this time nothing is being done,???

    We talk a lot of Aviation security in the Caribbean. The same way the drug mules can get drugs on these planes.

    If they want to, they can smuggle other things, including explosives.

    We need to wake up!!!

    A CARICOM ID card with a finger print is needed. You don’t put any CARICOM person in Jail , just send them back on the next flight and ban them for 10 years from entering .
    Time to check out the “security” who oversee the exits.
