Our East London Polygraph Examiner dealt with an enquiry this week regarding a sister’s worries about her brother. Drug dealing and addiction are serious problems that need to be dealt with swiftly.
Q: I’m wondering if you have an East London Polygraph Examiner who can help me find out if my brother has become involved in drug dealing again.
My brother Jason has been out of jail for just two months. He was put in there previously for dealing drugs. He was caught with cocaine three years ago trying to get it into the country. Customs stopped him and to this day he says he didn’t know the drugs were in his suitcase.
He has been released on licence to my address because he lost his flat as a result of his incarceration. I want to trust him but even though he is on a curfew he still manages to go out to the pub and get drunk. We’ve had all sorts of people turning up at the house and I’m worried he’s getting back into his old life. Last week I checked his phone and there were messages on it asking him to take a trip abroad when he has finished his sentence. It appears he’s thinking about doing it as well. When I asked him about it, he got really defensive and claimed it was just a mate who had moved to Morocco and was inviting him over. I’ve never heard of this person before and I know most of his friends.
When he was released from prison it seemed he had learned his lesson. He’s told me how horrible it was and I don’t want him ending up back there. I really want to stop him doing anything so silly again and I’m wondering if a lie detector test would show his intentions. I know he’d take it, as at the moment if I told the police my suspicions they’d probably put him straight back inside. What do you think?

Response from our East London Polygraph Examiner
This must be very worrying for you. You are right in that if the police learned of this he would be sent back to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence. He might also get more time for conspiracy to import drugs.
You haven’t said how old you brother is but if he is young, he needs to be aware that he is ruining his future. With one conviction under his belt for drug dealing he already has a criminal record. His employment prospects will be affected.
If you can get him to agree to a lie detector test it will prove one way or the other what he is doing. You could also add a question about his previous offence to find out if he really did do what he was convicted of.
You can book a lie detector test online via our website. Alternatively if you’d like further discussion please call our free helpline on 0800 368 8277. Your conversation with our customer service representative will be completely confidential. Please mention that the East London Polygraph Examiner has suggested you call and they will take it from there.
I hope we will be able to help and look forward to seeing your brother shortly.
