THE TWO British women who were raped in Barbados in October 2010 at a beach in Holetown, St James, would like to sit down tomorrow with Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin to discuss how the police handled their cases.

Diane Davies, a 63-year-old retired schoolteacher from Anglesy, Wales, and Dr Rachel Turner, 30, an academic researcher, of Hertfordshire, England, told the SUNDAY SUN they had requested an urgent meeting with Dottin but were awaiting a response.

“We are hopeful that he will meet with us,” said Davies, who pointed out that she had a long list of questions for the Commissioner, including about the arrest of Derick Crawford, the man accused of raping them, but who they have adamantly said was not the culprit.

“We have requested a meeting with Mr Dottin on Monday. We haven’t had a reply yet, so we are waiting and hoping,” said Davies, who returned to Barbados to testify at the preliminary enquiry Friday.
