In Barbados, An Abandoned Mother’s Unpaid Rent Meant A Night Raid By Police For Interrogation & Intimidation – Complete With Naked Body Cavity Search
When thugs of the Royal Barbados Police Force planned a raid upon Ronja Juman and her 6 year old son, they scheduled it for the middle of the night when the family would be sleeping. Like the Nazi Gestapo or Communist Stasi of old they wanted to inflict maximum terror and intimidation.
Unpaid rent – a private debt to Charles Leacock, the Director of Public Prosecutions for Barbados.
Juman was dragged off in the small hours of the night to the police station where she was searched naked and even had her intimate parts searched by police.
All for unpaid rent!
Ronja Juman’s story is detailed on the Justice B Mine blog and in the BFP article Barbados Director Of Public Prosecutions Charles Leacock – Ordered Police Thuggery Over His Tenant’s Unpaid Rent – Night Raid, Woman Strip Searched Over Unpaid Rent!

What Are Good Barbadians Going To Do About This Injustice & Thuggery?
In the next few weeks or months, we’re going to have a discussion about what good Bajan people can do to stop the government corruption and abuse by government officials that has now even gained hold of our Royal Barbados Police Force and our Justice system.
Forget about complaining to the police, the government or the justice system. As they say in the gangster movies, The Fix Is In.
Various public officials have known about Ronja Juman’s middle of the night horror for months. These public officials include Chief Justice Simmons, Attorney General Dale Marshall, Prime Minister Owen Arthur and various high police officials.
Robert Mugabe would be proud.
Tell The World!
One place where I think we should start is to tell the world. International embarrassment and pressure works. If we organise, Barbados citizens could send out hundreds or thousands of Emails within a week or two. We will put together some examples of letters and publish the names and addresses of organisations that might put pressure on the thugs that seem to be in charge of this country.
So let’s get the contact information for various organisations and BFP will post it all later.
Who can Barbadians turn to in the international community?
Here’s some specific and general suggestions for organisations we want to tell about what happened and what is happening to Ronja Juman. Let’s hear your suggestions and comments please.
– Transparency International
– Amnesty International
– Reporters Without Borders (over the Barbados media blackout and censorship that will accompany Juman’s case in Barbados.
– International Association of Chiefs of Police (What is their criteria for membership? Can we petition the organisation to revoke the membership of the Royal Barbados Police Force?)
– Other respected international police and justice organisations.
– Women’s groups around the world.
– Various high courts around the Commonwealth. The Chief Justices around the world.
