Basseterre, St. Kitts, November 15, 2018 – Curtis Crooke, a ramp attendant at St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport has had his airport security pass revoked with immediate effect for his political views.
Crooke, an employee of TDC Airlines for the past 20 years, of which 15 has been at the airport, has obtained the services of a lawyer after the company informed him of the revocation on Wednesday.
Crooke, who successfully passed the recent refresher course, had his airport security pass renewed with the new expiration date of September, 30, 2019 by the St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA).
The revocation of Crooke’s airport is dated November 12th although he performed his duties on the 13th and was informed of the revocation on the 14th.
The revocation letter from SCASPA’s Head of Security states he is a high risk to be working in a sensitive area, although he has never had any verbal or written complaints about his work.
Crooke, a staunch advocate for the welfare of the nation’s children for several years, has been a community activist on social and political issues and has mounted several one-man demonstrations outside the Office of Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris and call into radio stations to discuss issues only during his days off.
