Garcia leaving Monday
Raul?Garcia?is leaving Barbados for his homeland Cuba next Monday morning.
His attorney David Comissiong confirmed that he was booked to leave on a Caribbean Airways flight at 7 a.m. He will be accompanied by immigration officers and will have to stop over in Trinidad and Panama before arriving in Cuba.
Garcia who served a 20 year prison sentence for drug trafficking but became an immigration detainee after he was released from prison in 2010 because no country would accept him, only received news last week from officials from the Republic of Cuba that he could return to his homeland.
For the past several months he has been staying with a Barbadian family after a High Court judge ordered that he be released from detention since a deportation order in his name had been exhausted.
Comissiong said Garcia’s ticket had been purchased by family and friends and he will be staying with his uncle in Guantanamo.
