Officer arrested in strip club probe

Saint Lucia police are continuing investigations after several foreign women were arrested at a club in the North of the Island.

Reliable sources have told the Times that a police constable and a female national are the latest to have been arrested.

The name of the officer has not been released.

However he is reported to have been taken to court this morning.

On Thursday, April 28 about 11:45 p.m police conducted an operation at a night club located in the Northern part of the Island.

As a result, two females from Dominica, three from Jamaica, one from Barbados and four from the Dominican Republic were arrested and charged for working without a valid work permit.

They made an appearance before the first district court on Tuesday May 3, 2016, and were granted bail.

Under section 317 of the Labor Act, both the person who employs a non-national to work here without a work permit and the employee are liable on conviction to a fine of five thousand dollars or imprisonment.
