  1. That’s what the police have to do Arrest and Charge them .I hope the Magestrate have all of them Remanded at Bordelais

  2. Good job law enforcement, but the jail is overflowing with these characters..We also need help from the labour department of enforcing a fair living wage system to help combat our current financial situation.. Slave wages will never solve our current problems..

  3. Wishful thinking, the Labour Department is a waste of time. They can’t even defend workers rights farless their rights to a decent wage. It’s a crome not to resolve labour issues within the specified time frame.
