BARBADIAN POLITICIANS have been warned about the dangers of “getting into bed” with criminals.
That caution has come from former Chief Justice Sir David Simmons, who said any such partnership would be detrimental to the country.
Sir David, who was also a former attorney general, made the plea while commenting on the dangers of politicians “lying in bed with the underworld” during the radio talk show Down To Brass Tacks on VOB 92.9 FM yesterday afternoon.
Sir David said that throughout the Caribbean, especially Trinidad and Jamaica, there was evidence which showed that political parties embraced gang leaders and drug lords. He added that this included politicians involving those criminals in state-funded projects.
“I’m warning that it should not happen here.”
