Dottin not meeting with British women


Added 27 November 2012


COMMISSIONER OF POLICE Darwin Dottin has declined to meet two British women allegedly raped in Barbados in October 2010, but who insist the man charged by police is not their attacker. Dottin insisted yesterday that while their case was before the court it would be “improper” for him to meet with the two. The women, Rachel Turner and Diane Davies, flew to Barbados last week  to lend their support to Derick David Rudolph Crawford, the man police arrested and charged with their rapes. They believe the police have charged the wrong man. The women claimed a meeting arranged between them and the commissioner for yesterday was cancelled by Dottin.
