DECOMMISSION GLENDAIRY PRISON. This is the call from Sir Henry Fraser as the historic but abandoned building in Station Hill, St Michael, remains under the control of the Superintendent of Prisons and by extension, the Attorney General.
He was speaking in the wake of the cancellation, by the Barbados National Trust, of Glendairy as one of its open houses this year.
Admitting much interest had been generated among members of the public who were looking forward to walking through the historic building, Sir Henry urged government to speed up the decommissioning of the site since the last time it housed inmates was in March 2005.
“I think what can be done is for the Government to proceed with the long talked about plan to decommission it as a prison,” Sir Henry said.
