Police transfers nothing new
TRANSFERS?in the Royal Barbados Police Force are nothing new, says Attorney?General Adriel Brathwaite.
He was commenting on recent media reports of several transfers in the Police Force since the departure of Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin.
Speaking during debate on the 2013 Budget yesterday in the House of Assembly,?Brathwaite said there was nothing sinister about the shifting of the personnel.
“If you have a new manager, you expect he would want to put his own stamp and make his changes, but they [the Opposition] would have you believe that there are sinister things at work,” said Brathwaite.
He accused the Opposition of wanting to sow the seeds of discord in Barbados.
The Minister also said he had received a telephone call about “chaos” at HMP Dodds Prisons recently but on investigating he discovered that it was a simple matter which he did not identify.
“The prison officers are hard at work . . . things have never been perfect in this country but what I can commit to the people of Barbados inspite of the comments from the other side, is that this Government will continue to take you into our confidence and ensure that any solutions that we come up with . . . are homegrown and that place the people of Barbados at the centre and forefront.” (JS)
