TWO OF BARBADOS’ longest serving prisoners are to be freed today.

The local Privy Council met last Friday and ruled that Frank Anderson Carter and Anthony Leroy “Nagga” Austin, both 61, be freed from Dodds Prisons in St Philip.

Acting Governor General Elliott Belgrave, on advice of the council, subsequently ordered that the two murderers should have their prison terms ended – after Carter had served 26 years and Austin, 27.

Attorney Robert “Bobby” Clarke who, along with Queen’s Counsel Douglas Mendez and Alair Shepherd represented both men, confirmed to the DAILY NATION yesterday that he had received a letter stating the Privy Council had remitted the killers’ sentences. (TS)
