  1. They are guilty they must answer for the lives of the missing. They should have went through the proper channels instead of trafficking these people. Now they’re blood is on their hands.

  2. I hope these people in St. Kitts are treating our Antiguan brothers properly. Remember they are innocent until proven guilty. The jail in St. Kitts is not fit for humans as it is ran down junk from colonial days and no Antiguan should have to suffer in them.

    • @ Bilbo
      Let them suffer and eat grass. Why would they be smuggling people in a small over crowded boat. Any high official who was involved should also be in jail in St. Kitts.

    • So what were the Antiguans doing, giving them cruise around the island in the middle of the night?

      No Antiguan should have been trying to smuggle Africans into any other country. Antigua is rife with criminals, because too many of you condone their actions and turn a blind eye to crime.

    • @ Bilbo, one question to you boss:

      Where you the one person in All Saints to vote for Gaston and the ABLP in thelast General election?

      Must be, after that ridiculous and outrageous response to the detained Antiguans …

    • The Jail in St Kitts is not fit for humans you say Bilbo.Is the Jail in Antigua fit for humans?

  3. @Biblo of All saints:

    If you can’t do the time, then don’t do the time. The Antiguans and Barbudans who took part in the foolhardy venture should know better.

    I would struggle to believe they were innocent. Antigua to St Kitts is approximately. The journey time by air is 25-30 min.

    Therefore, what good reason could they to be on an overcrowded boat without life jacket?
