While we were in vacation, I read the local papers, amongst other things the robbery of the chains d' however, on the street, especially in the evening.
But I did not imagined that can occur into full day, in a place turistic like Fort Louis (Thursday March 22, 2012).
Moreover, after the violent robbery (there is a report of the Gendarmerie) we were badly surprised of what happend thereafter:
First was the violent roberry in top of the Fort. Four young men attacked my gilrfriend and myself and they stole (breaking) our chains, camera photo, the cell, threatening our lives. Looking for everything in our pockets and in the bag.
After the roberry, we ran in bottom of the little hill, at the Prefecture.
Both women which were there, did not wanted, quite simply not, to help us, telephoning at least the Police force!! (?)
Even when insisted, considering the gravity of the fact, both Madames invited us to seek by ourselves for the Police!
To seek the Police force, in Marigot is a a whole test. Finally a car of the Gendarmerie was stopped.
They led us to the Gendarmerie, but the way towards over there, is long and we'd believe the worst, considering the distance!
Finally arrived, the Madam gendarme, says to us to stay in the line !
The gendarme who led us in the car retained the first information to be able to make research, he said.
They ensured us that there is a surveillance camera close to the Fort, in order to identify the attackers, but…. all the the employees concerned were in… training (!?)
After more than one hour to attempt and still another hour, for the report, we left bitter to the hotel... we felt like no one could help us to be feel more secure on the island.
While we needed more the authorities, they seemed tu us more accomplice with the agressors. It is a pity!
