Probe it!

Probe it! Prime Minister Freundel Stuart. (FP)

A Caribbean human rights group in New York wants Prime Minister Freundel Stuart to order a probe into the case of a man found dead “under suspicious” circumstances in Barbados.

Rickford Burke, president of the Caribbean-Guyana Institute for Democracy (CGID), has written to Stuart calling for “an independent and fair inquiry” into the death of Clinton Norton, whose parents are from Barbados and Guyana.

Norton’s body was found in Liquidation Centre, Bay Street, on September 3, and CGID quoted the Barbados police as saying that the father of a teenage son had broken into the building, cut himself in the process and bled to death.

The CGID insists workers at the Liquidation Centre saw blood on the floor when they opened the building and called police who responded and “took a report and left”. When the employees searched the building, they “stumbled upon Norton’s body covered with plywood in a pile of dust”.

There are always two sides to every story, the good Book reminds us. And if we respond to one devoid of access to the facts/evidence, our opinion will be off and we may wind up looking like fools. So let's wait for the publishing of the police report of Mr. Norton's death before commenting.
