    CUSTOMS OFFICERS BANK ACCOUNTS ARE ALSO AT AN ALL TIME HIGH….

    How is it possible that so many CUSTOM OFFICERS are MILLIONAIRES?

    How is it possible that they can build MILLION DOLLAR HOMES FROM THEIR POCKETS HOW?

    HUGE APARTMENT BUILDINGS IN PRIME LOCATIONS without having any history of owning a business, winning the lottery, or inheritance.

    MR INDIAN REMEMBER THERE IS ALWAYS A MONEY TRAIL ALL OF IT IS TRACEABLE …. Where is your report on all the millionaires that you manage daily?

    OPEN SECRET..

  3. This incident was avoidable.

    All the signs are there.

    Investigate from top down.

    Only investigators from outside can resolve customs woes.

    Blind investigating people that can see…..

  4. “The Customs and Excise Division is resolved to operate at the highest levels of professionalism and integrity as it remains steadfast in its overall mission to protect and serve the people of Antigua and Barbuda.”

    SAYING IT DOES NOT MAKE IT SO….. MOST PEOPLE KNOW DIFFERENTLY…..

  5. Things go missing from peoples shipments all the time. Consignments are opened without a Representative or the addressee being contacted. Best way to safeguard your items is to sleep in the consignment until you reach Antigua.

    • I heard people complaining that items are missing from their barrels all the time. I am wondering if they have someone at Bend-Down selling these missing items.

  6. What I would love to see is that the politicians, police, immigration, ONDCP and all the top officials taking lie detector test to stamp out all corruptions
