NJAM member Lennon Matthew claims illegal underground operations continue to be carried out despite what the rules and regulations state, and he ponders on what can be done to curtail this criminal activity
NJAM member Lennon Matthew claims illegal underground operations continue to be carried out despite what the rules and regulations state, and he ponders on what can be done to curtail this criminal activity. He argues that the key is to get control over the situations and take actions. He says it is possible that some people participate in criminal activity as a result of social circumstances, however, we must exert control over those activities. He said that drawing comparisons between Dominica and other nations is a precursor to doing nothing to address the current issue. According to Matthew, we need to take action to ensure there is no increase in illicit activities.
He explained that the reason behind this conclusion is that there will always be a struggle between good and evil, but the goal is to minimize illegal activity. He ponders on what steps can be taken to reduce this criminal conduct as much as possible.
Matthew emphasizes that one of the main drivers of illicit activity and covert action in a nation, according to the United Nations, is corruption. Once that corruption spreads, the rise in murders and gun violence that we are currently witnessing in Dominica is likely the result of the corruption that has been simmering there for the previous few years.
