THE?ISSUE?of police allegedly beating confessions out of people in their custody is a worry not only for Barbadians, but for the Guyanese community as well.
Vice-president of the Guyanese Association of Barbados, Samuel Legay, an attorney at law, told the DAILY?NATION there was a growing number of Guyanese making allegations of being beaten by police.
“It is not only an issue for Barbadians but non-nationals as well. These allegations remain an issue and I agree with the former president of the Barbados Bar Association that we need video cameras implemented so that when a person is brought to the police custody, one can see what has transpired up until the time the person is charged or released.
“Persons, both local and Guyanese, have alleged that they have been subjected to police beatings to get them to say certain things,” he said.
