Rape allegations by Jamaica drug accused against cops at delicate stage – Barbados

(Barbados Nation) Police have reported that investigations into allegations by a Jamaican drug accused that she was sexually assaulted and raped by two police officers are at a delicate stage.

The 27-year-old Spanish Town woman said the offences were committed while she was in the holding cells of Central Police Station between February 27 and 28, following her arrest at Grantley Adams International Airport on drug-trafficking charges.

The Jamaican woman had appeared in a Bridgetown Magistrates’ Court and was remanded to Dodds Prison, St Philip.

Noting that investigations were being led by a senior police officer, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Crime) Tyrone Griffith told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday the matter was now at an advanced stage.

“A thorough investigation is being conducted and whatever action is required to be taken, we will take,” Griffith said.

“The investigations are at a very delicate stage and in the interest of all, we will not divulge anything further.When the matter is completed, a full report will be made,” the senior cop added.

Last week, another Jamaican woman, Shanique Myrie, accused immigration officers of finger-raping her when she arrived at the airport last March 14.
