  1. The DPP to investigate the Royalton pool party? Is this country turning upside down? Any investigation of any crime in this country is the responsibility of the police not the DPP. After an investigation by the police charges can be laid or conversely the police can seek a discussion with the DPP to determine the appropriate charges to be laid. In no circumstances, however, is it the responsibility of the DPP to investigate any crime. Moreover, the office of the DPP is an independent creature of the Constitution and the Cabinet cannot give the DPP any directives. This country is now truly upside down and has lost its way.

  2. Wait, wasn’t this visitors from America? So who will be charged? The hotel’s management? By the time this ‘investigation’ gets started these people would have already departed our shores. Their weekend getaway is over and they are gone.
    I don’t see and of these ‘perpetrators’ being around to answer any questions.
    Does the hotel management hold any responsibility for allowing such an event on their premises? I would think so. So there is that, but those people, who by the way had alot to say about us being upset at their antics, have gotten away scotch free.

  3. The DPP is now being used as a Scapegoat. While you people in the Cabinet are all covering your arses. You all do not want to confront the Management of the Royalton Hotel.Shame,Shame, on all of you. Invite them to come to Cabinet and explain their damn bad behaviors. The disregard they have for our Laws.Then punch them in their mouths and kick them into their arses.
