Too long on remand

Too long on remand Earl Victor, who was on remand for four years on a murder charge. (FP)

The family of a 38-year-old man who spent four years on remand at Her Majesty’s Prisons Dodds on a murder charge before the charge was dismissed in September are planning to sue the Government and file an official complaint with various United States organizations.

Even though the murder charge was dismissed against Earl Victor, he remains incarcerated on a robbery charge, but his relatives are saying that he should be given bail or freed because of the length of time he was on remand for the murder charge.

Back in 2008, Victor was held by United States Customs and Border Protection after he attempted to enter the United States from Canada. He had skipped bail in Barbados a year earlier while on a robbery charge and United States authorities discovered that he was the subject of an Interpol lookout.

Victor was deported to Barbados and charged by police with murdering Rodney Stanford in 2006.

Only the other day Earl crossed my thoughts and I wonder what had become of this old acquaintance of mine.

Hardened Criminal! There is not an iota of evidence to support such allegations by Officials of the Barbadian Royal Police Barbados Royal Police Force under the leadership of Darwin Dottin and Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Charles Leacock.

Those corrupt bureaucrats’ abuses their authority by fabricating a false arrest warrant via INTERPOL, US Department of Home Land Security Immigration and Boarder Enforcement to have Earl arrested and deported to Barbados without due process of law in the US.

They knew very well that their lies to US officials could not hold water in a court of law from the get go!
The mega questions every one should be asking are how many more Bajans families who may have fallen victims to Dottin and Leacock’s deceptive and corrupt practices?
