Barbados Police Commissioner Says “Press Freedoms In Barbados Not Threatened”
Have a good look at the photo of Nation News associate editor Tim Slinger on the pavement OUTSIDE of the hospital.
The latest bit of information to come out is today’s article in the Nation News where it is confirmed that two of the three journalists who were thugged by the Royal Barbados Police Force were OUTSIDE OF THE HOSPITAL when they were roughed up.
Commissioner Dottin can backpedal and make all the cooey-cooey noises he wants. It doesn’t change the fact that the Royal Barbados Police Force was once again seen acting with the interests of it’s political masters as it’s first priority.
