Stabroek News writes: The owner of a car, who was summoned to take Austin to Corriverton, told this newspaper that he took the man to the landing first where they contacted the police and the coast guard. After that, he was taken to the hospital.
The coast guard also contacted the Berbice Anti-Smuggling Squad, but it was unable to go out in the water because it “didn’t have sea-worthy vessel.”
Yes folks no sea-worthy vessel and how do we expect to stop smuggling and how do we ever expect to defend our Territory when we can't even react quick enough to save our citizens during a river mishap.
The Surinamese must be falling over with laughter. We better stop talking up about access to river before gunboats appear. God help us.
