    Sadly, quick money has become the norm in Dca. From Captain down to cook in it. Those BIG Boys don’t get caught because they align themselves with people that cannot be bothered by the constitution and fearless of what others may think. It is my humble opinion that if found guilty the keys should be thrown away into the ocean. Passport sale, none paying of land taxes, fertilizer selling, drugs and alcohol abuse among others will only destroy the nation.

    Assertive, Never Aggressive! :twisted: :twisted:

    Dominica is moving forward fast, don’t matter how good you may think you are, there is always somebody better, we got the Technology, the brain and power.no hiding place. I don’t want to go through with the business and failed. When you get caught it means you are foolish. If your plan don’t come together why blame others? Ignorant of the law is no excuse, why point on others,you made your mistake and you pay for your mistake. I am not happy that you get caught, You did not plan properly

    Mr Jno Baptist is a good man and I don’t care what negative comments ppl put about him. Everyone knows drugs is bad and it’s your choice to take it or not (just like taking too much paracetamol and overdosing urself). Whereas, a man taking a gun, cutlass ect and willfully kill another man and walk out of jail on bail and even free days after. In Dominica alone ppl only take jail for only drug dealing. Mr jno Baptist will get through this.

        Not so in Dominica. Often those who violate the law pay the lawyer, especially in drugs cases.

      O.k. so if this fool is such a “good” man. I would like like to set up, open me up a drug, cocaine spot in my village, then, you can send your parents, sisters, brothers, grand parents to be my first customers. And see how you will like it, and then call me a good man. Drugs dealers, suppliers should be hanged. thumps up to the police. they did a wonderful job

      If is a good man what was he doing with such a huge amount of coke in his procession to kill people’s children. Good people don’t deal with drug.

    If they give this guy bail I will give up. He will be free to intimate the small fry in places like Bath estate and make them shut up.

      There are conditions for bail and adhering to it. Surely, if he is granted bail, it will not merely be “hello and goodbye; live in peace” until your Court hearing.
      The Court sets certain conditions for bail. Should he not adhere to it, he will be returned to jail. His sentencing will be increased. Therefore, it will not be to his benefit to violate the conditions. Wait and see.

    Oh yes, cocaine is a hell of a drug!!! While some sit in high offices enjoying a sniff or two before a scheduled appointment, we are hearing of a drug busts confiscating close to six million dollars worth of white diamonds (cocaine). We then sit and ponder…” where did all this powder come from?” It certainly was not manufactured here in Dominica! We don’t even have coca plants. Is this man really a ‘Kingpin”? Or is he simply a worker using his place to stash the stuff FOR the “KINGPIN”? In recent years we have seen reports of MAJOR drug busts that seemingly just disappeared. I remember a case which involved a Government employee in the Ministry of Finance of all places. This was maybe over two years ago, they (the individual and his Co-Defendants) were denied bail and then a day or two later was granted bail by a higher Court. I’ve never heard another word about this case since. This case involves BIG money and if this guy is really the boss it will be a…

      At first, he was not immediately arrested. Is he not the same one who was allowed to leave Dominica and to return that year in September? To this day, we have heard nothing about him.

    I have a theory here. Why not grant him bail, allow him to return to his criminal activity and use police surveillance to locate and destroy the remainder of his stash, plus his connections. In the crab business, I employ the same techniques. If I see one crab I do not catch it right away. I often try to locate its colony, and then I make my move. How do you think I sold enough crab and manicou to pay for my villas and mine my children? Life isn’t that complicated. We are the ones who unnecessarily complicate things.

      No garcon, I will build hotel with concessions and tax free income to take to the bank pretending it is cash from customers. And when my tax free period up I will sell it for big profit, tax free again and retire to Florida. But that hotel must have a laundry because a lot of washing to do. For 10% I even do washing for friends.

    No bail . If found guilty confiscate the assets as well. However once you do this yu must be consistent across the board .

      You think running drugs is not working hard. well u must be a damn fool….

      Drug running is a 24/7 job no lunch break, or annual vacation, and your life (and freedom) is constantly at risk.

      Drug running is illegal yes, but don’t get it twisted, drug dealers are far from lazy.

        That is why they never reach age 65 to retire. Too much stress my boy and I not in that. You don’t even know if a woman is with you because she loves you or your money but I guess these fellows don’t care anyway.

    DNO, there are a few people in our community going by the name of Anthony Jno Baptiste, therefore I suggest you seek to protect yourself against legal action by those innocent name holders. For example, there is an Anthony Jno Baptiste who is a senior Customs Officer in the employ of the State, and he may suffer hurt as a result of the publication of his name. So, DNO, try to refine the identity of the person arrested so others with the same name can be happy that care was taken by DNO to ensure they don’t suffer hurt as a result of this news article.

      Similar to those who use the same pseudonyms (names) that other users on this Website are using.
      DNO knows the email addresses of those who post comments and should prohibit such people from using the name that others are using.
      Users know what they wrote. Therefore, they know if someone else is using the identical name which they use to make it look like the other person wrote the comments. DNO should prohibit them from using identical names which another is using.
      This has been brought to DNO’s attention more than once.
