Ordinary seaman facing disciplinary charges
A SAILOR HAS been court-martialled on allegations that he cursed his superior and that his behaviour was unbecoming of the post.
Ordinary Seaman Christopher Broome who is attached to the engineering division of the Barbados Coast Guard went on trial before a military court comprised of president Major Christopher Birch, Major Ryan Smith and Captain Donville Dash.
He has been brought up on two internal charges, first using insubordinate language to a superior officer and conduct to the prejudice of the good order and military discipline by behaving in a manner that was unbecoming of a sailor, all on April 7 this year.
He is represented attorney Vincent Watson. The prosecution team is led by attorney Sub-lieutenant Rita Evans and Captain Andrew Darlington.
The matter is being heard at the Barbados Defence Force headquarters at St Ann’s Fort. (AC)
