KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, May 28, IWN – A former minister of construction in Cuba who is working at the Argyle international airport lost a lot of vital information when his laptop computer was stolen from his house last week.
Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves told Parliament of the crime on Monday and decried such action.
“Mr. Speaker, I don’t understand some of our people you know. This man is doing his Ph.D in concrete works. He has a lot of his information on his laptop. He also has on his laptop all the specification for the asphalt plant and for the concrete batching plant. You know somebody went in the man’s dwelling where he is and stole his laptop with all his information. It just happened this week gone here,” said Gonsalves, who is also Minister of National Security and Legal Affairs.
“There are a lot of things, I don’t talk about them … You think this pain is easy to bear, when you have somebody of that quality coming [and] somebody just go and steal the man’s laptop? The laptop itself is nothing significant. It is the material you have on it,” Gonsalves further said.
