Owners of livestock, who graze their animals on the E.T Joshua compound, have been given until May 18th to remove their animals or be faced with a penalty.
This is according to Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force, who in a release yesterday said failure to do so will result in the animals being impounded.
The decision came as St. Vincent and the Grenadines prepares to host Phase 2 of Exercise Trade-winds from June 14th to the 21st 2019 and the decommissioned E.T Joshua Airport at Arnos Vale will be utilized for the duration of the Exercise.
The release said the grazing of animals on the E.T Joshua compound must cease from May 19, 2019.
The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force in conjunction with the Trade winds Secretariat will take possession of the entire E.T Joshua Airport compound from Monday 20 May to Sunday June 30 2019.
The Airport compound including the parking lot will be off limits to the General Public from the 19 May 2019.
