New home for Garcia

Social Share

Government officials have been tight-lipped about where Cuban Raul Garcia will be housed following his pending release from HMP Dodds, but the SUNDAY SUN has secured a picture of his new home.
Located in the Garrison area, the Government building is being converted into a maximum security house, surrounded by a ten-foot fence which was recently constructed.
Sources said Garcia would have a three-man Barbados Defence Force security detail, to not only ensure that he does not get out, but that he was also protected. He is expected to be moved as soon as the renovations are completed.
Last week, his attorney David Comissiong said Prime Minister Freundel Stuart had assured him on April 20 that the accommodation would soon be completed.
Garcia will be kept at that location until Government can find a country willing to accept him.
The convicted drug trafficker, who completed his 15-year sentence in 2010, remains detained because the country of his birth, Cuba, has revoked his citizenship and the United States, where he became a naturalized citizen, will not take him.
