Prominent St Kitts-Nevis national implicated in passport investigation
Published on December 31, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) -- A prominent St Kitts and Nevis national has been implicated in a police investigation into the case of a Jamaican national who was deported to the federation from the United Kingdom, where he was seeking to enter the country bearing a St Kitts and Nevis passport.

Reports reaching WINN FM indicate that the man told local authorities that he had purchased his passport in St Kitts for $8,000 from someone in Independence Square.

On Sunday, Police Commissioner CG Walwyn told WINN FM that he couldn't confirm the specific details of the man’s claims of how much he allegedly purchased the passport for, but he confirmed his arrest and the continuing investigation.

“Based on what we have investigated on and continue to investigate is that the person purchased the passport from someone local, and the... main problem I have with the whole thing is that the allegation is that a prominent local person signed off on the form for the passport, claiming to know this person, so we’re looking very deeply into that right now,” he said.

The commissioner said that as far as he was aware, the man was still in custody.

Makes me sick to see what this island has become. Ganja illegal but stealing from the treasury isn't. Go figure????
