Antigua Barbuda AIrport Security and Antigua Broadcasting Services has done a grave injustice to Aviation and Airport Security in general, by the publication on the internet of the playbook on crowd storming the airport, through its least secure gate on privately owned land.
Clearly someone at the highest level of Airport Security has failed to understand that publication of ways and means of breaching high security areas and establishments like airports is not publicized.
For this reason if none other the Airport Security Drill is not just a failure, but the breach of Private Operations properties without their permission, thereby invalidating their insurance, and is unacceptable and has raised legal issues.
Compounding this breach is the far-reaching violation of exposing how and where to commit the crime of storming the VCBIA.
Had consultations with the stakeholders taken place, as the airport is expected to do once other independent properties are involved, the violations would have been avoided, by enlightenment from the two owners whose properties were violated by negative security exposure.
Considering the youth crime wave which Antigua is going through, it was a serious slap in the face of airport operators to see on TV the gang of youth thugs storming the gates of the private owners, in an attempt to get onto the airport ramp.
What messages are ABAA & ABS sending to the young and restless on the streets looking for new criminal excitement.
Serious Security Personnel are aware of what to publish and what to retain from public consumption which could damage industry, personnel and the country at large.
It is clear that the upper echelons of Antigua’s National Security needs to pull in the Airport Security Director for training and protocol in administering Airport Security.
