Police officers accused of confiscating cannabis from men but the substance is missing

6

OBSERVER/NEWSCO:

The High Court case involving two police officers charged with corruption in 2017 was yesterday adjourned until a date to be determined.

It is alleged that almost five years ago Corporal Marcus Isadore and Constable Peter Lugay held a man at gunpoint and took illegal drugs from him for their personal gain.

The lawmen allegedly confiscated about eight pounds of cannabis from the complainant in February 2017, and another 29 pounds in April 2017, which reportedly have not been accounted for and were never turned over as evidence.

The two men were on trial in December before Justice Ann-Marie Smith.

Attorney Andrew O’Kola made a ‘no case’ submission on behalf of Lugay, and Attorney Lawrence Daniels made a similar submission on Isadore’s behalf.

  1. What the hades is going on here? IF there is any truth to this, maybe we should start with a little ass kicking followed by serious jail time. The folks at 1735 know how to deal with this. Go get ’em. IF innocent, give them a raise. isn’t that how it’s done?

    • …this is how a #Powerhouse controlled and ran by Gangsters operates. There’s nothing #cartoonish about this, since, it gives credence to the ALLEGATIONS, that Law Enforcement from those in Parliament who passes and amends Laws, to the Judiciary/Law Enforcement which interpret and apply the ‘law’ equally are CORRUPT.

        Yeah… I’m of the opinion that the majority of cops protect the political elites in Antigua. I don’t KNOW this as a fact but I suspect you are right, that the entire judiciary and parliament is corrupt too.

        We need good investigative reporters to protect the peoples interest. Some patriotic Antiguan whistleblowers on the ‘inside’ would be helpful in exposing their criminal cabal and to bring to justice those who are guilty of crimes against the people of Antigua.

  2. judge: Mr. DRUG DEALER HOW DO YOU PLEA TO POSSESSION OF 2 LBS OF CANNABIS?
    drug dealer: 2??? WHA YOU MEAN 2??? AH 29 LBS DEM TIEF DE REST!!!
