Jamaicans helping out Customs

KINGSTON – Commissioner of Customs Danville Walker says ordinary Jamaicans are to be praised for the success his department has been having in rooting out corruption at major ports in the island.“I have a lot less obstacles now than I had when I started,” Walker said Friday, attributing this to the fact that “a lot of people have bought into the vision that we can have a system that is free and air for everybody”. A police officer looking at appliances stacked in this vehicle at Marketplace which was raided on Friday.  “What you find happening now is that more people are now prepared to assist . . .  Some people are prepared to talk up more and join customs in the fight against criminality,” he said. Walker spoke to the Sunday Observer fresh from a clampdown by the Jamaica Customs Department’s Contraband Enforcement Team and police on a major container theft scheme that operated from the Kingston Container Terminal and Kingston Wharves Limited over a nine-month period.
