No one is above the law – La Corbiniere on police arrest

p_court

The recent arrest of a police officer in a strip club investigation, points to transparency within the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF), Minister of National Security La Corbiniere has said.

La Corbiniere boasted that the police have been able to do their work in a transparent manner and seeks to ensure that those who break the law are dealt with in the same manner as anyone else.

“Not because this person is a member of the Force they are not going to act,” he stated.

The minister said he will not cast any judgment, but said once the officer broke the law, he must face the necessary consequences. La Corbiniere said the courts will now make a determination as to his fate.

A police officer identified as Alexander Jules and a female by the name of Lisa Callendar, were arrested for the offence of employing persons without a work permit.

On April 28, police conducted an operation at their night club located in the North and arrested two females from Dominica, three from Jamaica, one from Barbados and four from the Dominican Republic.

The foreign females were subsequently charged for the offence of working without a valid work permit and granted bail after they made an appearance at the First District Court.

  1. Again Mr La Corbiniere doesn’t seem to get it. Why is he commenting on things that he shouldn't in reality? I beg to ask the question does this minister know his role and if he does why must he always address only issues relating to the police? This is the role of the Commissioner of Police. The minister's role is to (1) Maintain law and order, public safety and defence against aggression. (2) Controlling the flow of people into and out of the country. Mr La Corbiniere, when was the last time you address the issues of crime in the country? What procedures have you put in place to combat crime? Lastly why have you address the flow of illegal immigrants coming into St. Lucia? What policies have you implemented to strengthen our boarders? I ask these questions only because all you seem to focus on is to make comments which I find should be done by the Commissioner.

  3. "No one is above the law "- straight from your lips 'minister' (and I use that term VERY loosely).

    Given your statement, do you intend on securing the arrest of the relevant shady parties within your camp for the alleged Lambird's scam? Or is that statement reserved for persons outside the party? I am so sick of the double standards.

    Mind you, I am not opposed to the arrest of the officer. My point is the law should not be functional in select circumstances only; it should be consistently and swiftly applied in ALL cases- Lambird's INCLUDED!

  4. Yes la corbinere police arrested at syrip club is one thing.

    Muvh more important are the absence of arrests in all of the unsolved murders and rapes. The police undermanned and under resourced. When that can happen then you can do a little boasting.
