Cocaine in the Pepper Toronto

Canadian media reported that  on June 23, 2016 17 packages/ 19.34 kilos of cocaine in two cartons of a shipment of peppers from Trinidad via air freight were seized at the Lester B Pearson International airport, Toronto by CBSA. The seizure on June 23 was reported in the media on July 8 indicating the usual investigation before disclosure with no report of arrests made public to-date. The methodology used indicates the lack of trafficking imagination and expertise of the traffickers in Trinidad. Peppers on top of 17 packages in just two cardboard boxes out of a shipment of peppers will not mask the product from any form of detection. This was a give away shipment which alerted the CBSA to the need to intensify surveillance of passengers and freight from T&T. The purity of the 19.34 kilos will explain the reality of origin and capacity. To lose MTTOs product in this way results in a very short trafficking career with them and you and your family will pay for the loss in a variety of possible ways.Don’t lose your head!!! All the signs point those who are not within the ambit of the MTTOs which raises the possibility of “information from an unknown source” creating the seizure. This is how you clear the forest of deadwood to allow the dominant to thrive and this clearance is going all the way to the old top which will become topless. Pax Mexicana!!! I have noted those in opposition today ranting and raving about the escalating crime rate in central Trinidad. But I remember well during their heady days in state power when I repeatedly warned the surge was on the ground and would soon become a wave. I reported that Chaguanas East and Couva North will be the terrain of the first phase. What was my reward for doing my national duty? Maybe it was my dismissal from UWI? I wonder if the present government is interested in what I have further to say? Ah still wondering.

    What is your opinion on the following story?

    A 44-year-old Antigua man is expected to be questioned today before being brought before an Arima Magistrate after he was allegedly held with an estimated US$200,000 in undeclared money.

    The money was found around 8am yesterday at the Piarco International airport by officers of the Customs and Excise Division.

    The man arrived on a flight from St Lucia to Trinidad.

    After he told Customs officials that he was only in Trinidad for one day for a vacation, the man was selected for an impromptu search.

    The money was found in a lining of his suitcase.

    He denied knowing about the money in the suitcase, and claimed that he had been “set up” by persons known to him.

    He is expected to be taken to the Piarco Police Station where he will be charged with a series of offences.

      Two persons were arrested for cash muling one in St Vincent and one in St Lucia with a Venezuelan charged and convicted in St Lucia. These two and the case in T&T all had the same modus operandi currency vacuum sealed in plastic pouches. Money has to be moved to be laundered and where better than T&T? The illicit trades of the Caribbean are cash businesess and this cash has to be washed. The cash mules then travel the Caribbean collecting and moving cash to laundries of the Caribbean. This has nothing to do with banks selling hard currency and having inadequate supply to match demand. This is the business that runs on US$ and EURO seeking a laundry and if you connected they will sell you part of this stash of hard currency looking for a laundry but be wary when you buy they own your life and that of your family.

    In a time when you cannot get US dollars in the Banks, how did this man get US$200,000.00? I would like to hear your opinion on this and whether there is an indirect political nexus via forex policy.
