Desir promises statement on ’torture’ video

Desir promises statement on ’torture’ video

Acting Police Commissioner, Milton Desir, has promised to issue a statement Monday on a ‘torture’ video that has gone viral on social media.

Desir is just back after accompanying National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis to a two-day  Franco-Saint Lucian Security meeting in Martinique.

The Acting Police Commissioner told the Times that he was aware of the video.

News reports have identified the victim in the video as 18 year old Scott Atkins, originally from Desruisseaux.

In  the video the handcuffed youth is wearing what appears to be a blood-stained shirt and is pleading for his life.

“Mommy, tell Shawn pay the people for me – mommy, mommy, the people go kill me! The people go cut my head!” The victim says  as automatic weapons are pointed at his head.

In another video the victim is seen lying on the ground while two men, one with an automatic weapon and another with a chain saw, stand over him.

A voice, speaking a mixture of Spanish and French announces that if payment is not made within fifteen days the victim would be dismembered.

In yet another video the victim is shown being beaten and hit on the head with a handgun.

“Pay the people they money garcon Shawn,” he pleads.

According to local media reports, the victim left Saint Lucia earlier this year and has been seen in Venezuela.

 

In an audio clip a male voice warns that a ‘war’ is about to start.

      Y’all people just bent on talking nonsense , y’all know nothing at all , not even half of the story, so I think y’all should just stop talking . The only person who knows the fact is the two persons mentioned , .Scott was not forced to go, and wasn’t kidnapped, he was actually happy and refused to come at the appointment Ted time, and begged to do another job, things went bad, no robbery involved. And now all the blame is on Shawn because things turn .. Shawn was actually the investor. Till things went bad, so get your facts right people please. Stop spreading the man’s name and picture, life is not a joke.

    No matter how tempting and lucrative the drug trade may seem, stay away. Drug dealings cost lives. I have watched some documentaries on TV concerning drug pushers. These guys are astonishingly wicked and merciless. The young people who gravitate towards the drug trade are prisoners of NOW. They want everything NOW. Life doesn’t work that way. Take time, involve yourselves in lawful and legitimate work, accumulate your wealth and live long.

        To the woman in the video that say Scott gone missing from earlier this year since u knew all this about the information you gave why you waited till now to speak up about your little cousin? I’m confused are you involved since you know so much besides who is Shawn? I am following this story I’m a mother and I do have a son this age and it breaks my heart to watch this video. And ok since the family is crying what are you all doing to save Scott?

    Drugs don’t get drop off from slu to Venezuela. Drugs comes to slu,sum1 goes down to Venezuela as surity till the drugs is paid in full he wouldn’t be released. Most likely Shawn never sent the money down for the kartels so they keep Scott head for the Colombians cuz in 1st place the venezulans don’t own it

    KKK….well said Shawn double cross the Venezuelans and now his little brother paying the price.And did the girl say her cousin was kidnapped since last year.And no body report it,but yet we talk about this great relationship between our allie Venezuela.Shawn never gave the Venezuelan the right amount of monies,what right amount of monies.I thought Scott Adkins had gone to Venezuela to drop drugs,from where,where did the drugs come,unless drug growing in st.lucia by the heap from.18 year old found his self in the mouth of the lion,all because of his Cousin. I tell you this family must be all involved because if is my little brother or any body in my family you send to drop drugs at 18 and Mafia or Cartell kidnapp him you will not be alive.And the young boy frightened and know he will die,but you will die to.Family,MessMoney is the root to all evil.Am optimistic but it look grim.Rhe boy could have been dead already from last year.This can be an old video.If he was kidnapped from last year.Choops.

    What statement? Did this happen in St. Lucia? What jurisdiction does the Royal St. Lucia Police Farce have in Venezuela. Did you see the NYPD make any comment when ISIS beheaded those Americans? No they did not. So keep your focus on your business. Let the Ministry of Foreign Affairs attend to this.

      how? Lucia is independent. The British/English think they can just go to Caribbean and Africans countries and rule and steal from them. They can’t manage their own country. White people are the one taking advantage of vulnerable people and are the ones who spread class A drugs around the world. (Words deleted)

    ….please stop trying to swim with sharks when you are a mere flying fish. The consequences of this heartless drug world is not worth the price that you and your family will pay. In addition innocent bystanders may also suffer for your ill gotten gains. It’s blood money straight up and down it really is. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 and rest assured blood money is blood money…NOT WORTH IT

    Venezuelans? Or Colombians in Venezuela? Get the things right. Colombians are the ones that kidnap people, threatens with guns and chain saws. There are plenty Colombians with Venezuelan ID. Colombian paramilitaries do that, NOT VENEZUELANS. The chain saw thing is A SEAL OF THE COLOMBIAN PARAMILIATRIES. Venezuelans are tired of the Colombian criminals. We have the same problem in Venezuela. Venezuelans have been victims of the Colombian paramilitary and thugs that go to the country to commit crimes. We have 6 millions of Colombians in Venezuela. Imagine. Most of the crimes are committed by Colombians. Our jails are full of Colombian criminals. Colombia exports drugs, crime and paramilitaries to the world. THE DRUGS, GUNS AND DRUG TRAFFICKING, CRIME, KIDNAPPING in the Caribbean has a Colombian seal. Colombia is the biggest cocaine producer and exporter in the world. It is a narco-society. The biggest revenue in Colombia is cocaine, not potatoes, or coffee, IT IS COCAINE! AND NOW ST LUCIANS ARE GETTING TO KNOW WHO ARE THEY. Colombia is paying millions of dollars of their narco-money to clean its narco face on cable channels TV worldwide and in the meantime they are signing a “peace treaty with the guerrillas while Santos gets a Nobel Prize. All very well orchestrated to wash their narcoface, but… the cocaine production will keep on growing and growing in Colombia, and with the protection of 7 US military bases. Stop blaming Venezuelans for what Colombians do
