Police Commissioner Says Zero Tolerance for Setting Up Road Blocks and kidnapping

By Marisa Stedman – Q95fm News.

Commissioner of Police Mathias Lestrade told the press that together with the Minister of National Security there will be zero tolerance of any kidnapping here in Dominica or persons setting up road blocks. He lamented that both of these offenses infringes on the rights of other people and is reason enough to be punished by the law.

The commissioner highlighted that Dominica is known to be a peaceful island throughout the Caribbean and the world. Therefore, it would be unfortunate if that image is tarnished because of the actions of ruthless lawbreakers. However, he is happy to report that two of the men responsible for the kidnapping incident were taken into custody by the Dominica Police Force.

Mr. Lestrade further added that he is going to do all within his power to ensure that this doesn’t happen again especially because both of these activities are federal offenses.
