Basseterre – Seven months after the Timothy Harris/PAM/CCM administration took office, St Kitts and Nevis seems to be returning quickly to the pre-July 1995 days under the Kennedy Simmonds PAM Administration.
Police confirmed at a hastily called press conference mid Thursday afternoon that one man was killed and another arrested on the Conaree Beach when a boat said to be from Antigua, was intercepted with bales of drugs in the early morning hours after it illegally entered the territorial waters.
At least four persons have been arrested and a pick up seized.
Sources state that there was also another drug bust in Guadeloupe when a boat destined for St Kitts was intercepted Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
Concern is being expressed that St Kitts and Nevis seems to be returning to the pre-July 1995 era under the People’s Action Movement government when the economy was based on the rampant illegal drugs trade and St Kitts had earned the title “Devil’s Island.”
