Share Share LocalNews Inspector Weekes: no decision on reward payment by: – April 12, 2011 Sharing is caring! Tweet 10 Views no discussions Share Inspector Claude WeekesIn an exclusive interview with Inspector Claude Weekesthis morning, Dominica Vibes News learnt that no decision has been made regarding payment of the reward which was offered for missing teen Shanice Jemmot.“While a reward was offered by the members of the family, I think $10, 000.00 and $5000.00 by a private citizen, the Government of Dominica also offered a reward in the sum of $20, 000.00. What we must note here it’s a decision that has to be taken and I’m sure the best decision will be taken as to who will be given that reward, or whoever it is, is deserving of that reward.”Inspector Weekes further explained that the “What is also important is that Shanice has been found alive, that is what is cruicial.”Inspector Weekes made special mention and thanked the Dominican public, Social Welfare agencies and the media for the role they played during the search for the missing teen.He particularly highlighted the role of the Government,”they were very much concerned in fact the Prime Minister and his team visited the Police Headquarters and had a meeting with the top echelon of the Police Department and the other co-ordinating sections who were on the ground. Because I can tell you, the Government’s concern has to be noted, while people were saying negative things about the Police and the Government in fact they were calling for a new commissioner, they were calling for the FBI to come, they were calling for Scotland Yard and they cried down ofcourse with victriolic comments on the Police Department.Inspector Weekes reiterated the commitment of the Police Department to the Commonealth of Dominica, “We want to say that our Police Department continues to be committed in fighting crimes. In fact we have a mandate to fulfill, and even the resources that we have I can tell you that we are doing admirably better than many of our colleagues in other jurisdictions and they are blessed with probably better technology and more advanced resources technology and other resources.Dominica Vibes News read more
