This week on 18° Degrees North, A Jamaican former cop gets indicted for drugs in the United States. Days later, Jamaica’s popular police commissioner, Owen Ellington, announces his retirement. Coincidental timing or are the two connected? .....Or perhaps is there another reason triggered by the United States government? We probe Ellington’s sudden departure.
We also speak with Jamaica’s Minister of National Security Peter Bunting in an extended interview. He talks about his plan to stamp out corruption.
And St. Lucia’s love affair with country music. Who knew you could skip Nashville or Texas and line dance in the Caribbean?
