Get video cameras working in all police stations in Barbados and protect the innocent.
That’s the message president of the Barbados Bar Association, Andrew Pilgrim, has sent out to Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin and Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite.
Pilgrim believes it’s time for talk about improvements in the Royal Barbados Police Force to stop, and instead to have modern technology that has been promised for almost a decade to finally be employed to protect the rights of people charged and in police custody.
Pilgrim is adamant that once the technology is in place, the bad police in the system would be rooted out. “The bad police in our force will continue to beat and torture suspects until the commissioner insists on the use of the video suites that are rotting at police stations,” Pilgrim told the DAILY NATION yesterday.Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
