Stop gun flow

As guns continue to filter in through the Bridgetown Port, the latest batch a few weeks ago, Minister of Finance Christopher Sinckler is urging customs brokers to play their part in stemming the tide of illegal weapons.

He has promised that the Ministry of Finance, under which the Customs Department falls, will be putting up “the appropriate level of resources” to help lawmen in their fight against the illegal importation of guns.

“It is the responsibility of all of us, wherever we are and however we can, in whatever little ways or big ways we can, to ensure that we stamp out, eradicate or eliminate any areas through which illegal guns, drugs or other contraband can find their ways in Barbados through our ports of entry or elsewhere to affect the orderly function of this society,” he said.

Sinckler was speaking to members of the Customs Brokers Association at their annual general meeting at the Small Business Centre yesterday. (HLE)
