  1. I hope they can lift some prints from the files in the ministers office to see who has been passing them to him them. Over to you madam commissioner.

  2. Hmmmmm ! Is it only me, but shouldn’t this be a part of Basic Police Training 101. You would think in at the academy, in their training manual under The Context Arrest Detained & Process, Paragraph Two “FINGERPRINTS”, they would have studied the theory, and mastered the practical, before been placed in uniform ?? Lord help us ! Well don’t stop there with those Lapo fools, the proper commandment of The English Language, and the ability to write a proper detailed report should be on the list next for them. The Absolute Shame Of It.

  3. @The Honorable Lucian Highgrade I completely agree. This is (or should be) long-standing basic Police training and practice. I wonder too, if there is are good fingerprint/DNA data bases accessible to the St Lucia Police, once they have tested for and taken fingerprints? That worries me too on a whole other level… I wonder if ethics are taught to and, instilled in, the Police Force (and all Public Servants and Ministers) in St Lucia?!
