St. Lucian to be deported from Barbados for wounding

MID-WEEK NATION, Barbados: A St. Lucian in Barbados illegally will spend the next month here at taxpayers’ expense after a relative failed to find the cash to send him home.

Two weeks ago, Rubinas Edwin, who was staying at King’s Street, The City, appeared in Court No. 1 of the District “A” Magistrates’ Court, and pleaded guilty to wounding Kensley Jacob on March 5.

At that time, Magistrate Douglas Frederick fined him $2,000 forthwith and a relative had undertaken to provide the money for the return ticket to St. Lucia.

However, Edwin and his family member returned to court yesterday and the relative revealed he had been unable to come up with the fine or the plane fare. As a result, the magistrate jailed Edwin for a month–the alternative to the forthwith fine–and ordered that at the end of the sentence he be released into the custody of Immigration officials for deportation.

  1. Once again, Lucians go overseas and continue their bad manners. Plane should drop him in the shark infested waters somewhere in mid air. Sending him back home so he can kill people? Hope the authorities keep two eyes on him.
