    And so the Cayman Islands doubled my Work Permit fee from $7,000 to 14,000 in one year and the difference is?

    Sadly, Cayman is no longer the place it was when you could keep any large amount of cash at home. I would never say anyone deserves to be robbed at gunpoint but you can put yourself in the position that it is likely to happen. Cash should be dropped at the bank at a different time each day (maybe even a different branch). It doesn't cost much at all to use the disposable night bags. Cayman is not safe enough to keep cash around any more.

    5.55 am, not many cars on the road-where was the helicopter and how many escape roads were blocked? ? Did they leave on foot? Don’t they have a canine unit?

    Before the Private Security Law 2009 was cooked up by the Mr. Security Monopoly and passed by the PPM Govt., private businesses and individuals had the discretion to hire their own private security, which is badly needed now but now…

    All and every security personnell has to register and have a police licence to operate.

    These criminals are obviously working from some source of excellent intelligence…

    Knowing exactly who, when and where to hit and vanish into thin air.

    There is something very sinister going on here.

    This 6' 2" individual has been described in a number of robberies yet no sign of the police being able to track this man down.

    There is some dark work at play here; I truly feel it for the people of Cayman right now.

      I'm not sure I understand your posting…there is NOTHING in the law which prohibits someone from hiring another person to act as a PERSONAL bodyguard.. those persons who act as security in public service capacity, ie: bouncers, nightclub security, uniformed security guards, alarm installers, et al…need to be "licensed"…so forgive my confusion why having complete background and conviction checks are a BAD thing???

      Anon 18:16 you best be quiet we know who you are? we are watching you right now via CCTV a team of intelligenty aggressively dressed Security agents in Pink with white gloves have already been dispatched to your location to deal with you accordingly. yes Cayman this is the way some in this country believe we should live and they have in fact hijacked our society with Politics ,Immigration, Crime, Security, and made themselves very wealthy in the process. Those now tinkering with population expansion want to push us even further to some far more destructive situations.
