“ We have this awful situation, I still say, my people going to the Grenadines, Vincentians going to the Grenadines, at the wharf being searched, being searched for what”.
Mitchell said whether there is a cruise ship in or not the situation is the same, because in any event once there is a cruise ship in, they use another entry rather than the normal entry.
You have numbers of policemen 6 to 8 at a time searching people, those policemen should be on the streets in Kingstown.
That’s where they should be doing a useful job, Mitchell said.
“ A resident of Bequia told me, she had come up to do shopping and she rented a car to take her back to the wharf, in getting there the guard at the gate told her she had to get out and bring her things to be searched, am talking about what she just bought in Kingstown”.
“ She told him she is not getting out, she was just in Kingstown, the guy walked away and left her there and refused to open the gate, she said she was early and she left the car there, and let it block those who wanted to come in, she waiting for them to arrest her”.
Mitchell told radio host Dwight Bing Joseph that there are a number of Questions he would like to ask.
Where are the statistics? what have the police ever found in a bag over the last ten years for anybody going to Bequia?
Have they found a single gun? Have they found a single trace of cocaine? Where are the statistics? what are they, Mitchell asked.
