  1. Let’s hope they are not catching those fishes, and hurriedly releasing them back into the pond. These characters need to stay locked up for a long time. A long tenure will make them physically slower, possibly more matured and give the public a reprieve. Attempts at rehabilitation will be conducted within the walls of the prison.
    Time to get serious. The public deserves a break.

  2. Impresive list of bad boys,we better start building another hotel.We still waiting for the autcome of the investigations regarding the body with out a head.You taking a long time or is this more complicated than what it looks like.The case reminds me of Sinaloa in Mexico,and the heads in a flour bag.Do we have a horse involved here.

  3. i know that the united arab guy had nothing to do with this..the police who drink for free at empire wanted to pin him so that they could crash fortnite club that was doing better….why would you seek to burn a competitor that you are doing better than…the truth will come out

    • How do you know, do you know the man? Better than who, competition where? The man’s business was slowly drowning. Unpaid wages, unpaid rent, unpaid utility bills. FACTS should be spread accordingly, not people’s opinions.

      • Slowly drowning ?? Those events pulled a crowd. Social media proves that. If the police keeps coming there making trouble any other customer won’t want to go there. It’s sad money and a payroll can control officers to carry dirty deeds. An arrogant man closed the guys place and you call this drowning .And if he did have a contract then am jealous because soon he will be swimming in money .

  4. soon you will here the true story of who and for what empire was burned. trust me it has nothing to do with that arab investor..

  5. So what about the micoud homicide where they brutally murdered kraffy at Willie’s wholesale? Wasn’t it the same France Theodore and Clint st Catherine crew? Why were they not charged 4 kraffys murder?
    Just curious….

  6. @bossman . Hes a criminal and he hated empire758. He tried several times to copy their events he took pics of their menu to duplicate it and he didnt like the owner. So he was part of it.

  7. The Arab INVADER definitely was the one who planned that. You ppl who dont think so need to s***. Hes a criminal and he hated redz. Ok? He took pics to duplicate his menu, he didnt like redz or empire. He always tried to steal their event ideas and he never spoke well of empire758 and hea a criminal. It would be a damn shame to see him get away with it. You ignorant pol need to shut up.

  8. Fortnite club was way way way much better than empire 758 .
    And Abdul never interfered with his staff or trying to **** them but Redz did with everyone . And one more time fortnite wasn’t involved in money laundering
    Who is the real criminal ?????

  9. Let pin this on the foreigner. That’s the easiest way out right. Why are the real criminals being protected ? And who’s payroll are those officers on. Whiles patronizing the bar, I have observed alot of harrasment from vieux fort police and jealousy. I could have even recalled a commotions made by a officer who threaten to permeantly use his power to shut down that club inspite of them having a permit. In st.lucia with success comes harrasment and jealousy. This is perfect Prof to show this club was succeeding. When it comes to events this club had a pajama event ,wukup, seduction (with exotic girls ) and had a flyer for open mic Tuesday where persons could start showcasing their comedy talents before we witness the social media blows. So as a pratronizor I believe all the clubs had their unique events. But from what see and hear especially knowing the level of corruption especially with those officers. This Arab guy did nothing . I smell insurance , a love affair gone wrong or a debt overdue for empire .
