REAL NEWS – Royal Antigua and Barbuda Police Force Officers moonlighting as security guards for the development company, ORANGE Limited, located at Pearns Point on the west coast of Antigua, have denied locals “traditional public use of a private landward access through an existing private development”.
The said security guards denied the beach goers “a public right of way” through the single landward access and insisted the beach goers provide their name before they are allowed entry beyond the checkpoint.
These demands are contrary to the laws set out in the Physical Planning Act, 2003, Section 50, subsections 1 and 2.
The Pearns Point area has at least 10 lovely beach, one of which was thoroughly enjoyed by the late British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, on her inaugural visit to Antigua in 1966.
Are the locals not allowed the pleasure of sea bathing in this area?
Isn’t it ironic that law enforcement offices are imposing the will of their overseers in a manner akin to law enforcement offices in white apartheid South Africa where none whites required passes to travel to different areas throughout the country?
