  1. Where is his picture or mug shot? Was he detained and in police custody or in jail or out on bail? Public wants to know.

  2. Saint Lucians like people business too much. He’s been charged but has not gone through court and found guilty, he’s not on the run. The people who need to know what he looks like already know.
