CUBAN REFUGEE RAUL GARCIA will have yet another day in a Barbadian court today.
His attorney David Comissiong hopes it will be his last before High Court Judge, Justice Margaret Reifer but has his fingers crossed regarding Garcia’s chances of finally walking out a free man.
“I’m hoping it finally happens tomorrow,” Comissiong told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday. “Right now it’s becoming ridiculous. The judge made a ruling on February 20 that his detention by the Immigration Department is unlawful. We were very expectant at that stage, and it is really frustrating. This should have actually ended a long time ago. He is a free man, and deserves to have the rights of a free man,”  Comissiong said.
The civil rights attorney said that if Garcia isn’t given his freedom today, he would have to consider another course of action to have the former drug trafficker housed and taken care of by an elderly Barbadian couple from St Joseph.
