Dunes casino robbed

Minister de Weever said the police uniforms should be coming in September. As to the change in a number plate, “I believe that as government, as a police we have to lead by example. Respect is a two-way street and if we try to hold some kind of double standard, it will send the wrong message. So I am very much aware and everyone will be following the law as they’re supposed to.”
