    “…….sentenced to death by hanging”.

    This is against an International convention against hanging signed by the Govt. of Barbados on the behalf of the people of Barbados.

    “The Barbados Government has appeared before the Costa Rica-based Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) over its failure to comply with a six-year binding order to abolish the mandatory death penalty.
    Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Charles Leacock, QC, who was the lead representative for the Government via a video conference when the court held a compliance hearing last Thursday, said this country has to adhere to the order because it accepted the compulsory jurisdiction of the IACHR since June 4, 2000.”

    “Europe’s point man in the Eastern Caribbean Ambassador Mikael Barfod has emphasized the European Union’s (EU) position that the death penalty is cruel and inhumane and does not deter criminals.”
    “He said he recognized that the mandatory death penalty in the OECS has been abolished since a 2002 Court of Appeal decision deemed it to be unconstitutional …..”
    “The EU sees the death penalty as cruel and inhumane, and scientific research has shown that the death penalty in no way acts as a deterrent to crime. Its abolition is essential for the protection of human dignity, as well as for the progressive development of human rights.”

    Just reminders that Barbados has Legal obligations not to carry out the Death penalty.

    Really ? Then inject the murderers like the USA.

  3. Carson C Cadogan July 1, 2016 at 5:29 pm

    In spite of our treaty obligations, we still find Barbados’ Judges imposing the Mandatory Death sentence which is now illegal.

  4. Carson C Cadogan July 1, 2016 at 5:33 pm

    If Barbados carries out any of these Death sentences the State will have to pay dearly for carrying out an illegal act.

    so Crson, whileyu gloat and bloat allow the murderers to kill more. We are signing on to agreements that are no help to us. If they were killing and I am not encouraging it high sociiety persons, the gallows would be swinging.
    I would hang them all and face any consequences. EU or anyone cant tell us not to hang, Soon they will tell us to bull more, let the gays marry,
    go sleep Carson

      I see you have a problem with LGBT people as well.

  6. Alex Alleyne July 1, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    “Sentenced to death by hanging”. Is this a way of letting this killer go free?. You and I done know that not a fella will never get to go on that gallows and swing ever again.
    Life in Dodds without parole for each person killed .
    Now we know he will never see the sun again …. as we Bajans wid say.

  7. Gloria Mendes July 1, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    We need to have the lethal injection approved for cases like this one. It really was horrific.

    Well what is all the hullabaloo about . The man was convicted for murdering the young ladies and sentenced to death .
    We know that he’ll most likely not be hanged ,but his life sentence is a death sentence in itself. He might as well be dead because he’ll never ever offer anything to society. Maybe, just maybe one day he’ll wish that loosing his life to hangman would not have been a bad thing after all .
    He die many times over in Dodds you can bet on it.

  9. Everton Henry July 1, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    We need to have proper sentencing so that convicted murderers and those convicted of manslaughter would spend many many calender years .When killers plead guilty the State should thank them but take the evidence and punish them accordingly 25,60 75 99 life etc so that cannot return to society unless properly reformed and under a parole system.Some would not be eligible for parole.

    @Carson C Cadogan!!!!! I have NO Idae where you are getting your Information from, but HANGING is NOT Illegal in Barbados, it is Still on our Statute Books, and it ahs NOT/NEVER been Removed, what is true, is that we have Sinned a Treaty with The IAHRC which states that we should NOT hang anyone, but everything is not ok with Barbados and that Organisation,

    in 2015, The Barbados Government appeared before the Costa Rica-based Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) over its failure to comply with a six-year binding order to abolish the mandatory death penalty.

    What Barbados should really do, if there is any Guts for it, is to Follow the Lead of Trinidad & Tobago, who had also originally signed onto that Court, but has since Rebuked the Treaty, as they were some Fundamental concerns in T&T about a Host of other things that they found out were also covered in that Treaty.

    in the murder cases of three Barbadian men, Lennox Boyce, Jeffrey Joseph and Tyrone Cadogan, who turned to that tribunal after exhausting all other legal channels.
    The IAHRC ruled in those cases that Barbados’ mandatory death penalty was contrary to the Organization of American States’ (OAS) Convention on Human Rights because it was cruel and inhumane and that Section 26 of the Constitution must be amended or repealed since that section protects the existing laws.
    “Now, why Barbados has to comply with the order? On June 4, 2000 Barbados accepted the compulsory jurisdiction of the Inter-American Court which means that all of the rulings of that court are binding on Barbados and must be put into effect,”

    Things like this was the reason for Brexit, the British People wanted to take back their Country from the EU, is it not time we take back ours from caricom, and Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) ??????

    • Carson C Cadogan July 2, 2016 at 9:06 am

      The mandatory death cant be carried out in Barbados.

    • Carson C Cadogan July 2, 2016 at 9:18 am

      You are being hypocritical as usual.

      We praise Organisations such as the OAS, the IACHR, Amnesty International, when it suits us.

      However when these distinguished Organisations have to speak the TRUTH to Barbados, such as telling us that the Death Penalty is cruel and Inhuman punishment, which it is, people like you get blue vex. Then you call for ……”… it not time we take back ours from caricom, and Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) ??????”

      You people love shifting the goal posts. The International treaty agreement which the Govt. of Barbados signed on behalf of the people of Barbados prohibits the use of the Death penalty and Barbados MUST OBEY the stipulation.

  11. Carson C Cadogan July 2, 2016 at 9:03 am

    All he has to do now is to appeal the Death sentence .

  12. jrsmith July 2, 2016 at 11:38 am

    Well what and how would all the Attorneys and lawful people react, if the court would ask the defendant you have been found guilty , what choice of punishment would you prefer, death by hanging , or injection , or 75 years of solitary confinement ..are we forgetting our Barbados is still strictly ,a them and us society its hard to trust the people who are suppose to administer the law in Barbados…

    My feeling of all these so call human rights organisation, they always tends to impose themselves as to when it suits them.

  13. Carson C Cadogan July 2, 2016 at 7:23 pm

    “DaCosta Cadogan v. Barbados

    On May 18, 2005, the Supreme Court of Barbados found Mr. Tyrone DaCosta Cadogan guilty of murder and sentenced him to death by hanging; a sentence that is in accordance with Barbados’s Offences Against the Persons Act of 1994. Barbados imposed this mandatory death penalty sentence without considering the specific circumstances of the crime or the mitigating factors. As a consequence of a savings clause in the Constitution of Barbados, the domestic courts could not declare the mandatory death sentence to be invalid even though it violated fundamental rights protected under Barbados’s Constitution and the American Convention on Human Rights.”

  14. Alex Alleyne July 3, 2016 at 1:28 pm

    @ Carson C Cadogan , I am with you on this one. This guy will not “swing”. Soon we will see some fancy Lawyer going to court on Bynoe’s behalf and causing the tax payer thousands of dollars just because of the handed down sentence.
    Barbados cannot hang anyone anymore on any gallows…..Period.
