Teary but comfy
FISHING BOAT CAPTAIN John Walcott, 49, and his mother Isalene Walcott-Chase could not hold back the tears as she warmly greeted him yesterday morning at the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex.
Overcome by joy, they held each other as they celebrated the captain’s safe return.
Walcott was among ten Barbadian fishermen who were fined and released last month for illegally fishing in Tobago’s waters. Less than an hour after being released, the four captains – John Walcott, Everton Brathwaite, Williams Moseley and Clement Standard – were rearrested, this time by immigration officials.
