Rodney Says Antigua Will Not Refuse International Assistance In Customs Officer’s Murder Probe


Police Commissioner Atlee Rodney has responded to calls for international assistance to solve the murder of Customs Officer Nigel Christian.

“I would say we are capable, but we’re not ruling out assistance from any agency,” Rodney said.

Christian was killed execution style by gunmen posing as soldiers on Friday. Since then calls have grown stronger for international assistance.

“I think we have the resources and we have the expertise but in a case like that you don’t know how much information you might have and what type of information you might have and that is where the determination has to be made.

“We have already started with our regional partners because we have a lot of expertise right within the region. Right within the region we have some expertise that we can tap into and we have started to speak to them,” Rodney added.
