Beach Vendors Going All Out For Justice Featured

Beach  Vendors  Going All  Out For  Justice

A group of vendors arrested by Beach Police earlier this week and charged with vending without a vendor’s license and in one instance vending in a no vending zone have vowed to leave no stone unturned in search of justice since according to them, they were not breaking the law.

According the vendors, at the time of their arrest they were not conducting any business, the area they were located was private property and they had the permission of the landowner to use the area. 

The officers they said were fully aware that the area was private property but proceeded to seize all their goods and had them carried to the station, some of them being perishable items.

 One vendor told the Informer that her bag contains over one thousand dollars worth of goods that included shirts, towels, short pants and wraps while other vendors had oranges, coconut, and water among other perishable items.

 When asked if this was the first time they had encountered such behavior from the police, one vendor in her forty-first year of vending in the area said this was the first time she has had such an experience.

 With the exception of one vendor Joe Michael who was placed on four thousand dollars bail resulting from two charges, all the other vendors were placed on two thousand dollars bail with one surety. 

  After seeking legal advice on the issue on Tuesday the vendors held discussions with Minister of Culture Hon. Brenda Hood whom they said promised to engage the Ministry of Tourism on the matter.

  The vendors told the Informer that they are not prepared to rest until they get justice including the recovery of their goods or its equivalent value taken away from them in the process.
