Garcia taken for medical attention
Cuba-born drug ex-convict Raul Garcia, now fighting a battle in a Barbados High Court to be freed from what his lawyers contend is illegal immigration detention, has been taken from his living quarters at the Garrison for medical attention.
Barbados TODAY was informed that Garcia, who continues to be incarcerated although having already served his 20 year sentence, was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital under police guard yesterday. Today, one of his attorneys, David Comissiong confirmed that his client had complained of not feeling well, and was therefore taken to see a doctor.
Comissiong, who currently has a case in court seeking the release of Garcia, has been pleading with the tribunal to order immigration authorities to relax his “inhumane” living conditions, pending the full hearing of the substantive matter on December 10. (EJ)
