  1. Wonder if that $1.0M they paid collectively could have helped with some noble cause or whether corruption would have meant any true intent wouldn’t get served!!!

  2. All I can think is refugees capsize no one cares – some billionaires on joy rides go missing – it seems like multiple navy’s are instantly searching

    • Not even the people who smuggled them here cared one bit. They have collected all the money from those poor souls and left them to take some dangerous risks to get what was promised. Criminals they are.

    • @big up – whether it was the rich or the refugees, both accepted the risks of their actions.

  3. This just shows you how corrupt the deal is with these Africans that were promised a deal to be brought to Antigua with the understanding they will provided with fresh passports and a passage on to the USA . They brought them in under the auspecis of being ” rich business tourist’ but when the deal went south and the real victims ‘ the so- refugee’s ‘ start complaining and demanding that the Antigua Government and magic Mike keep up their end of the bargain, they turn theirs backs on them,and then try to wash their hands from this fiasco. That’s when they start calling them ‘refugee’s’ appearing as to be doing these Africans a favor by bringing them out of Africa.
    They were not refugee’s! A deal was struck with this Antigua Government, and GOA turned it’s back on these people, and that’s the reason they start rebelling and hiring boats to leave on, because they say to hell with this corrupt government. Smart people know what happened here. Why would any so-call refugee choose a struggling island like Antigua to be it’s refuge? Why, because they didn’t make a deal as refugee’s with the Gaston Browne administration, they made a business deal as the business people they are, and then when they came, some very high people bailed on them. How many refugee’s you know have that kind of serious money to be moved around like that? Very few, and these people had thousands of dollars in their procession which they used to payoff boat captains and a few others to get them around from point at to point be.

    Let’s not be fooled here, no matter what good intent this government seems to have, in this money hungry world that we live in today, no one do these kinds of things for anyone unless serious money is involved, not me, not you, and certainly not this Corrupt Government that have made similar corrupt deals in the past with similar results…just simply messy and tacky on all levels.

    So now you’ll see that this African fiasco was no good deed that was intended, it was a corrupt deal gone bad, real bad and fast.

    The Gatson Browne administration is only stirring up the Shuggy Simons foolishness so smart Antiguans will chase after this story and forget about the autrosities of this so-call ‘refugee’ corrupt deal.

    Wake up Antiguans, please wake up. This island is not going anywhere fast with this current administration in power, trust me on dat.

  4. @Islanman26 – you asked “Why would any so-call refugee choose a struggling island like Antigua to be it’s refuge”?

    Simple, because there are parts of the US that are so bad that even the poorest refugees from Venezuela want to be moved to Canada because they can’t deal with the filth and crime in places like New York City.

    My wife and I are considering your beautiful island as our next home. For all your problems you have a wonderful society by and large of wonderful people…that’s good enough.

    Always remember my friend that it can always be worse that what you experience
