Barbados Cave-In Deaths: Codrington Family Cries Out – Wants Justice, Not Cover-Up

No Inquest Called: Family Died When Home Collapsed Into Known Cave

donavere-codrington-barbadosThere are many villains who must bear responsibility for the deaths of an entire Barbados family whose members died after their house fell into a collapsing cave at Arch Cot. Horrifically, we know that members of the Codrington family did not die all at the same time. As he was trapped in the rubble, Donavere (the father) talked to people at the scene after the initial event. Some of the children could be heard screaming for a time.

Although we have been denied a public inquest by two successive governments, Bajans now know some of what happened thanks to the efforts of Hans Machel, Richard Goddard and a handful of others who, unlike Barbados politicians, still care about the truth and the public good. No thanks to the professional Barbados news media who are (or were, in the case of the Barbados Advocate) part of the cover-up to protect the members of the Bajan nobility who murdered the Codringtons…

Family Member Comments On Barbados Free Press…

BFP harps and will keep harping because everybody waited till Monday morning before they did anything.

They will keep harping because Donavere died August 28th not 26th.

They will keep harping because they could not even determine who was who when they finally started pulling bodies out.

They will keep harping because we still have clothing that stink with the smell of death.

And they will keep going because even if you had wanted to accept that it was just a tragedy… the actions of the BLP and now DLP government prove that someone is responsible.

Those Ministers sat at Arch Cot everyday, drinking alcohol and eating up feasts donated by hotels and restaurants across Barbados. Then the BLP proceeded to use Arch Cot pictures and pictures of us grieving all over their stinking manifesto and that’s why they lost, because God don’t like ugly.

Everyone one of them will suffer until they step up and do what is right.

GO BFP, THE CODRINGTON FAMILY THANK YOU. WE WANT TO SEE THE GOVERNMENT REPORTS, WE WANT AN INQUEST AND WE WANT A LAWYER THAT GOT THE FRIGGIN BALLS, CAUSE THE LAST SET DON’T SEEM TO HAVE ANY. THEY DROPPED THE CODRINGTONS FOR A BETTER DEAL AND THAT IS HOW WE KNOW THAT SOMEONE RESPONSIBLE.
