Law enforcement officials here are concerned about protecting Dominica’s borders, police public relations officer Inspector Claude Weekes has said.
He said officials are networking with the Caribbean and international community “to minimize the impact of criminality around our borders, in our borders” after the police coast guard here intercepted a Venezuelan boat west of Dominica on Monday.
Weekes reported Wednesday that police have been investigating the details surrounding the presence of the boat in local waters. The vessel, with six men on board had been taken to the Fond Cole’ coast guard base after being intercepted.
The customs and fisheries departments have particular interest in the matter, Weekes added.
