IT?SEEMS?that Raul Garcia has traded one prison for another.
The Cuban-born immigration detainee was finally released from Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds last Sunday but attorney-at-law David Comissiong, who visited him yesterday at the St Michael safe house where he was transferred, called the conditions punitive, restrictive and even worse than what prison offered.
“If you look at the house from the outside, one would be led to believe that Mr Garcia has been provided with a house that he could be relatively comfortable in and have some kind of privacy. This is not the case,” the lawyer charged.
“He is literally imprisoned in a small area of the house comprising of two small rooms and an adjoining toilet and bath. This is so disappointing. After working so hard in excess of seven months to get Mr Garcia out of Dodds Prison, it is so disappointing to see him in a similar if not restrictive prison at the Garrison,” a visibly upset Comissiong told the DAILY?NATION just after he emerged from a visit with Garcia lasting close to an hour.
