TOURISM OFFICIALS are preparing to break their silence on Sunday’s shooting of a visiting British couple, as police question two men in connection with the crime that has cast a negative spotlight on Barbados.
Meanwhile, the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office has, for now, retained its “no restrictions” travel advisory for citizens visiting the island.
Sources have informed the MIDWEEK NATION that a draft response to the robbery and shooting of cruise tourists Philip Prior, 72, and his wife Ann, 59, whose handbag was stolen in the attack, was prepared yesterday and was awaiting the approval of Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy.
“This is a sensitive matter,” the senior tourism official said, adding that while there had not yet been any public comment by the tourism top brass, “things are happening behind the scenes”.
