A prominent attorney in Barbados wants the cash-for-gold business to melt away. But more importantly, Barry Gale, QC, wants to see the Royal Barbados Police Force become more innovative in its fight against the upsurge in daring daylight robberies involving the theft of jewellery. In addition, he believes it is time for hotel owners to face reality and start informing guests of the distinct probability of being robbed of their valuables during their stay in Barbados. “The point is that this (upsurge in daring robberies) isn’t happening here and there anymore. People are being robbed of gold virtually every day. Hotels have a duty to their guests to warn them what they may face during their stay here. These are very extraordinary times at the moment,” the attorney-at-law added.
