Fmr Police Officer Edincot St Valle tells Dominica Police that selectively withholding justice will lead to the complete breakdown oflaw & order in society, if blind loyalty is shown to the political directorate
Former Police officer Edincot St Valle cautions the Dominica Police Service that withholding or delaying justice will lead to the complete breakdown of order in society, ‘as year after year, the hierarchy of the Police Service continue to allow government officials to violate laws and procedure, in efforts to prove their blind loyalty.’
St. Valle referenced that on October 7, 2016, the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force sought the assistance of the general public in determining the owner of a barrel in which many firearms were discovered. The barrel was seized on September 30, 2016 and had been on the port for two days.Then-Police Chief Daniel Carbon made this report at a press conference on Friday October 7, 2016.
The Former Chief informed that in collaboration with law enforcement of the United States of America; his officers conducted an operation at the Woodbridge Bay Port which resulted in the interception of a barrel which contained grocery items and originated from the United States of America. He says a search of the contents of that barrel was conducted by members of the Drug Squad in the presence of the Customs and Excise Authority and the Port authority.
“The following was found in the bottom of the barrel; five Taurus pistols, one Keltec pistol, one Rossi revolver, one hundred and eighty rounds of 7.62 round of ammunition, two hundred and fifty rounds of 9-millimeter ammunition, three hundred rounds of .38 ammunition, one hundred rounds of 387 ammunition. One 7 round magazine, one 12 round magazine, one 29 round sub-machine gun machine, one 9-million-volt stunt gun,” Carbon reported.
Since October 7, 2016, The Dominica police Service are in pursuit of persons who can assist with the investigations and according to the then Chief, they are very concerned about the discovery, as Carbon claimed “the safety of the country is the Service’s number one priority.”
However, to date, no arrests have materialized, and no statements have been reported regarding the progress made ‘if any’ on the matter.
