  1. Yes lock them up n dash way the keys. After all the wicked act that guy have committed on the people of this nation, they should be no mercy on him

  2. If this guy and his two women are found guilty, they should be locked up in 1735 for the next 40 or 50 years. Disgusting. I hope it’s not true. If it is, then there is no time left for mercy. We ain’t God.

  3. Glory and honor and power and majesty due to God holy name.
    God you are a good God.
    Psalm 73 is what I took courage and solace in after this young man try to bring an end to my good name.
    Put me in a cell for a bible text Matthew 23 verses 15 to 25 because he believes that the text was pointing to his criminal syndicate.
    He involved in a passport fraud and never spend one day in a cell.
    You ever see more unfairness,?

    • @Trevor Young:Was he the one you had an issue with up by the Court in St.Johns last year.I do not know this man at all.However,based on information from others publicly.He has a bad reputation.He in my opinion helped to tarnished the name of the Antigua and Barbuda Police Force.He is an Assistant Superintendent of Police.The books need to be thrown at him.If found to be guilty.Off to 1735 he should go.

    • Ralph against any form of passport selling. Not even CIP Ralph support.
      So we have two forms of CIP in Antigua. One run by government and one by the criminal sydicate.

  4. Its about dammmm time HIS ASS IS BROUGHT TO JUSTICE…

    The bible clearly says …for the high and mighty their fall shall bcome and his TIME has duly come….oh how the mighty has fallen …..

    He should be gassed …..full of himself thought he was above LAW….

  5. Would it be a good idea for our authorities to seek the US assistance in freezing/ivestigate the mother’s bank accounts until the matter is resolved in OUR courts since they want us to extradite our citizen to their country?
