How Ms Pillay could help
By Nicholas Headley | Fri, April 20, 2012 - 12:01 AM()
According to media reports, the United Nations Human Rights Commission has made 21 recommendations to the Government of Barbados, which has accepted 15 and, therefore, rejected six.
I hereby request that the Government of Barbados and the media publish the 21 recommendations, indicating those accepted and rejected in my name and the name of fellow Barbadians.
In the WEEKEND NATION of April 6 the United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay stated that there were “plans to put in place a United Nations human rights adviser to work with Government ministries and the UN Office . . . to identify gaps in laws and practices”.
Are such “advisers” attached to the governments of Russia, China, the United States, and so on?
Ms Pillay could help Barbados by using her considerable connections to find a country that will accept or take Raul Garcia. His predicament is his fault.
How much has Mr Garcia cost Barbados during his trial and incarceration and since the completion of his sentence?
How much will future provision for Mr Garcia cost Barbados?
Has Mr Garcia been tried for entering Barbados on the basis of illegal documentation?
He and all criminals should have to reimburse the state for all costs.
