Barbados Today published the story that former COP has formally handed over to COP Griffith and withdrawn from court matter against the Police Service Commission.  Included in the report is alleged authorization of wiretapping by Dottin.

Let Mr. Dottin tell the public why Sgt Boyce aint get charge for assaulting a Junior Officer whilst he was investigating an accident. Is it because she is his staff officer and his cousin Mr. Corrupbatch woman?

Let him tell the public how is it that civilians witnessed the onslaught of that officer and gave written statements all of which have disappeared. Insp Margaret Stephens was given the matter to investigate but out of common sense or fear said that the officer is her subordinate and she goes to church with Ms.Boyce and asked for it to be reassigned. Then the problem started. Supt Grafton Phillips who is one of Mr. Dottin pimps was given the mater to investigate and here are his recommendations to Mr. Dottin. That his Junior officer and his Sergeant be charged. And the biggest nonsensical recommendation that the civilian and independent witnesses account of what transpired not be taken into consideration. And to make matters worse, Lisa Cutting who is Corruptbatch’s son woman all of a sudden was in the vehicle with Ms.Boyce and gave a statement to that effect.

  • Letter sent to Commissioner Darwin Dottin by the Police Service Commissionparts I,II

The civilians stated in their evidence that a man was in the vehicle and we all believe that it was Corruptbatch but allow a sudden Lisa Cutting Con 1363 was there.  She is the same Lisa Cutting who stated that she was not working until she be returned to the major crime unit and ent break a sweat till DM put she back there. Went on sick leave when she get transferred and did not work until she was returned to that post by the Sam Darwin Dottin with whom she had some kind of affiliation be it political or otherwise.

Mr. Dottin got what he deserved and the morale of the force in the last week is at an all time high. When was the last time that police week was held?  Dottin and Pussyard Cumberbatch are two wicked men and the force will be better served seeing their back.

    Ok Bushie, the miller will cede to your experiential advice. You have been that way before and know fully the dangers of ingesting psychotropic drugs by switching orifices in true bi-polar fashion.
    Even the stupid meretricious cantankerous mesmerised miller is willing to listen to his superior when its comes to self-medicating.

    Yes my friend, blame the Opposition. You will soon have a field day to do Dixie while blaming the BLP’s 14 years of incompetent misrule for Barbados’s need to go to the IMF for a standby arrangement when the forex runs short very soon.
    And you should be the first to know the consequences of living above your means and unable to pay vital bills like utilities and bank loans while blaming it on your gambling habit.

    How come you want to hear from them? The same way you should not be looking towards poor Caswell to bring about change in the governance system or the public service why would you want to look in the direction of a party of corrupt idiots who spent 14 years (according to your assessment backed up by ac and CCC) destroying in true termite fashion this country from its economy up to the top of its governance structure.

    Don’t you think your BUP or “PUP” can do a much better job of advising the governing administration on the way forward instead of looking backward? Or is worshipping your BBE the doorway to Janus the god of smoke and mirrors?

    You are truly a schizo. One minute you are saying that the provisions in the Constitution are worth the paper they are written on and are mere official double speak since the real supreme power lies with the PM and the leader of the Opposition is just a lame duck of a robotic mouthpiece.
    Next minute you want to inject power into a bunch of malcontents and jump-ups for puppets and making them a potentially effective arm of government (or should it be governance?), even if the score is 26:2 instead of 16:14.

    Sargeant roger mayers the region top accident reconstructionist has returned to his job after he resigned because he told the officers to charge Cumberbatch brother,who also happens to be Dottin’s cousin and they refused and instead transferred him.

    I hope my taxpayers dollars does not have to go to pay these 2 crooks.

    It tells you a lot about Mottley that she is kicking up fuss and fighting so hard for them.

  • Sergeant Mayers back in force
    Added by Barbados Today on July 17, 2013.

    One of the region’s most respected accident reconstructionists has returned to the Royal Barbados Police Force.

    Sergeant Roger Mayers, who about two months ago resigned from the force, has withdrawn that resignation and has returned to his substantive position in the organisation.

    Mayers, who does work for other regional forces in his area of expertise, left the force after being transferred from the position for which he had been extensively trained overseas.

    Mayers’ transfer followed his investigation into a fatal accident and his subsequent recommendations that charges be brought against the person responsible for the road fatality. It was the second road fatality in which the driver had been involved.

    However, no charges were brought against the individual who is the brother and cousin of two very senior members of the Royal Barbados Police Force. (WG)

  • To add to Adrian’s comment the big question is why has the COP decided to go to court if he is aware that there is a weighty case against him.

    THAT IS MY CONCERN AS WELL DAVIDl unless he is getting bad legal advice for if there is indeed such weighty evidence in the hands of the PSC then I am sure that a sensible attorney like Amused would have advised Mr Dottin to plea bargain to safeguard his pension rights and ride away embarrassingly into the sunset rather than indulging in costly and futile challenges against a seemingly indefensible position. Plea bargaining to safeguard one’s pension rights is a common feature at all levels in settling serious disciplinary charges in the public service.

  • Looks like the for COP may get the last laugh:

    A BLATANT UNTRUTH.

    That’s how lawyers representing suspended Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin responded to a news report Thursday that their client had retired from the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF).

    The online newspaper Barbados Today in the cover story reported that Dottin last Tuesday “handed over the reins of management of the force to new Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith”.

    But Queen’s Counsel Leslie Haynes told the SATURDAY SUN: “There’s absolutely no truth in the article. And we are going to take legal action against the media house and the author of the story.”

    Haynes noted that after receiving a letter from the Attorney General’s offices, Dottin had handed over the keys to the Commissioner of Police’s offices at the Roebuck Street, City headquarters, but nothing else happened.

    He also dismissed as “rubbish” the suggestion that Dottin was withdrawing his High Court injunction against the Police Service Commission (PSC) as well as the Governor General and the Attorney General relating to his suspension.

    Haynes said Dottin’s legal team were expecting a decision very soon from Justice Margaret Reifer.

    Dottin’s lawyers charged that a letter sent to him by the PSC was invalid and ineffectual and their client should be taken off administrative leave and returned to work. * Please read the full story in today’s SATURDAY SUN, or in the eNATION edition. *

    Why are you so fast to accuse. I was surprise about the story. It seems that Wade is the focal point in all these happening. As a matter of fact I was most surprised about his alleged monitoring. Why would the PSC chairman send Dottin the letter stating His Excellency said this and said that. Wouldn’t it be more official if the confirmation from His Excellency was enclosed in the said letter to Dottin? Who is in charge…. the PSC or AG or Head of Security? Who should be the signatory of any dismissal? That is the fundamental issue regarding this episode.

  • Tell me why who have I accused and what have I accused them off? Caswell contends as does Darwin’s lawyers that the letter is invalid; I suggest that it is not. I have asked Caswell for comment on the recent development surrounding this case. I did so on the basis of the publish report in a Barbadian newspaper. I had no reason to doubt the report, until Darwin Lawyers say the report isn’t true. How is that rushing to accuse? Regarding the wire tapping comments etc Wade Gibbons have made similar comments via Facebook to a Barbadian audience and has now done so in an establish media space what reasons should I have used to doubt the veracity of his journalistic comments? All this means now is that Caswell and I are back in our holding pattern awaiting a judicial decision on the case of Dotting vs. the PSC. chuspe!

  • It is interesting to note that Wade Gibbons has been following this matter from his days as a Nation reporter. The act he is a former policeman is alo of interest. Even more of interest is the fact that Anderson Bowen included in a sworn Affadavit that he believes his phone was being wiretapped.

    Bowen’s back on the job

    Inspector Anderson Bowen, a well known crime fighter, returned to the job yesterday after almost five years on suspension.(Picture by Cherie Pitt)

    BY: WADE GIBBONS

    ALMOST FIVE YEARS after being suspended following his public call for Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin to resign, Inspector Anderson Bowen has been reinstated into the Royal Barbados Police Force.

    Bowen, one of the force’s top detectives, returned to the job on Monday and has been reassigned to the human resources department. When contacted yesterday at Central Police Station, Bowen declined to comment on the matter, saying only that all questions should be directed to Dottin.

    He did however express gratitude to those who had “counselled, advised and morally supported” him while he was on leave, including attorney-at-law Stephen Alleyne, wife Sharmane, brothers Daniel Bowen and George Haynes, and friend Bishop Alfred Vaughan.

    Reliable sources at the Personnel Administration Division told the WEEKEND NATION that Governor General Sir Clifford Husbands had accepted the advice of the Police Service Commission that Bowen’s suspension be terminated and that the half salary withheld from him since December 2005 be restored.

    Last month Dottin was directed by the Personnel Administration Division to make all arrangements for Bowen’s return to the job.

    Bowen will be entitled to retroactive vacation of about nine months. It is also understood that he will be promoted shortly. He had received formal disciplinary charges on April 2, 2007, some 16 months after being suspended for his comments.

    In October 2005 Bowen called on Dottin to quit, stressing he bore him no malice but suggesting that in the interest of the organisation and the general public he should leave the organisation since he lacked police management skills.

    Bowen also took exception to a number of public statements made by Dottin regarding police investigations and stated those comments often compromised the enquiries being undertaken.

    He made specific reference to comments about kidnapped victim Antonio Barker of Rock Dundo, St Michael, among other cases. Barker’s skeletal remains were later found in a canefield.

    Bowen was subsequently reassigned to the position of provost officer with responsibility for cleaners, maids and general workers, a position previously held by a constable, and up to that stage, never held by anyone of such senior rank.

    He took that matter to the Supreme Court seeking damages. Bowen also filed a writ in the High Court accusing Dottin of unlawfully wiretapping private homes, among other grievances. Those matters are still pending.

    While the Police Service Commission has ordered Bowen’s return to the force, it has undertaken a probe into Dottin’s professional conduct and recently filed four charges of misconduct against him.

    The Service Commission has also been probing complaints made by Deputy Commissioner of Police Bertie Hinds against Dottin over alleged mismanagement of the force.

    Hinds cited several instances where he said Dottin’s management was linked to diminished productivity, low morale and rampant sick leave in the force.

    Let us assume that the majority of the electorate decides to stay home and only 30-35% turn out to vote.
    Who do you think they would be voting for? To return a government that has taken away all of their formerly perceived entitlements like free tertiary education, bus fares, summer camps, free food at schools and free uniforms and books?
    Only such free things exist in jails but at a massive cost of the loss of personal freedom. Ask Playboy, then!

    Bajans haven’t yet seen what is in store for them as far as these “entitlements” are concerned. All those cushy unproductive politically protected jobs in the statutory boards and central government would have to go. You just cannot continue to borrow a billion here and a billion there from the international loan sharks and still expect to do business as usual. These international shylocks must get their pound of flesh in annual interest payments. What therefore must give way if not freeness to the politically dispensable goons?
