The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending today in Barbados.
Readers today are talking about developments in the Raul Garcia case.
He remains a detained man but yesterday a High Court judge intervened to improve conditions under which he was being detained by the Immigration Department.
Efforts to earn his complete freedom, however, will have to wait another 28 days.
This is what readers had to say on this controversial issue:
Robert Hollaway: “Twenty three hours locked up and one hour exercise and he is a free man? Probably had a better life in Dodds working outside, in the library. Issue is for the government to work out how to get him back to Cuba as the States will not bend on their rules. At least cut some slack. He could work within the barracks area I think. Been almost a year now since this started.”
Junior Moore: “Just totally free the man and stop with the run round thing now. It has been a long time now for him.”
Spooner Lorraine: “It’s amazing how people get bent out of shape and carry on with each other over issues they can't change and which are bigger than them. Besides as everyone is entitled to an opinion I dare say that before one speaks he or she should think.”
Ryan Wood: “Lord man it really can't be that hard. Let him go, keep an eye on him, he might even fled the island but he has served his time like others. Stop wasting our money.”
Amber Wood: “Ship him out the island. He's not wanted here. Then next thing you know and he sells drugs again and corrupt more of our young people's live?”
