Rage over raid
HEALTH?authorities raided the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex yesterday and after condemning the supermaket-style trolleys used by the fisherfolk, confiscated them.
The surprise move at the fish market caused tempers to flare as a female quality control officer accompanied by uniformed policemen contended with angry protests over the action. Vendors charged that the move was illegal and unfair, saying use of the trolleys played an important part in their fish businesses.
“This is unfair and not right. The fishing industry plays a very important role in our economy and we shouldn’t be treated like that,” Adrian Wiltshire told the SATURDAY SUN.
“I’m not saying you should ignore the law but you got to be able to work with people. The trolley is the only way most of the vendors could transport their fish,” he added.
