As a campaign is waged by two British women who are adamant the wrong man has been charged for their rapes, Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin has insisted that the evidence suggests otherwise. Dottin issued a statement to the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday in response to claims by Rachel Turner and Diane Davies that Derick David Rudolph Crawford was not their attacker. The two women, who have waived their right to anonymity, were raped in separate incidents in Barbados in October 2010. They also allege that the 48-year-old accused was hurriedly arrested to save Barbados’ reputation as a tourist destination. “The team of investigators who were tasked with investigating these assaults are firmly of the view that the evidence strongly supports the decision to arrest and charge Mr Crawford,” Dottin said in a statement he also sent to a British newspaper.
