“Earlier this year when we were thinking about buying a car, since we were using our father’s car when we came back to Barbados, we asked to receive a ‘duty-free’ concession [but] Darian was denied twice by a Government official, who even sent a message saying ‘Darian hasn’t done anything for Barbados as yet that grants him duty-free status’,” wrote Christopher.
