IN SPITE of the globally publicized judicial decision to free the man previously charged with raping two British visitors who had insisted he was the wrong man, the Royal Barbados Police Force is also adamant that it investigated the case thoroughly. Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin said yesterday that the force had reviewed all related files and “there’s really nothing that would keep me awake at night on this matter”. Recalling the arrest of Derek Crawford in April 2011 for the reported sexual assault of the women six months before, Dottin outlined a number of relevant facts, such as the matter of DNA. “If you read some reports you would think DNA absolved Mr Crawford in these assaults. This is not the case,” Dottin told journalists at the end-of-year Press conference attended by other police top brass at headquarters on Roebuck Street, The City.
