Disgusting Delay Undermines Justice System In Barbados
Now that one of the key witnesses in the child sex charges of Pastor Jippy Doyle died, it is finally convenient to have the trial.
In May, 2001, Royal Barbados Police Sergeant Stephen Adamson collected important forensic evidence at the time of the alleged sexual assault of a 13 year old girl by Pastor Jippy Doyle.
Over seven years later, the Jippy Doyle child-sex trial has started, but Sergeant Adamson’s evidence was read by someone else because he died a few weeks ago on June 1, 2008.
Oh well, at least it is not as bad as, say, a ten year delay in a child rape charge…
Does anyone else get the feeling that the judges, lawyers, witnesses and accused are but scripted actors in a play, with Barbados as the audience and Justice as the understudy that never takes the stage?
