Senator defends adult nightclub raid

Government has to do what is necessary to ensure that the security and the morals of the Barbadian society are protected.

Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Immigration Senator Darcy Boyce made that declaration today on the heels of last weekend’s raid of an adult entertainment club by officers of the Royal Barbados Police Force and the Immigration Department.

“We had to make sure that those persons who attempted to breach security were taken away from such activity. We say that, and it may sound light-hearted, but that puts us in a situation where we attract unwanted international attention when persons are engaged in that kind of activity. In such cases we are not sure whether they entered into such actions voluntarily,” he said.

Boyce made the comments as he led off debate on the Immigration (Amendment) Bill, 2014 in the Upper Chamber.

    The only way I would believe that they will do what is necessary is if they all resign because the mess in Barbados is getting worse in every sector, never mind the propaganda machine at work.-smh

    Did he said ” this Govt has to ensure that the security and morals in this society r upheld? seems as though he is living under a rock, Cuz he should know better than to use the words morals and this Gov in the same sentence.

    Barbados needs to get in check wit reality, this is not 1966 or the 80’s anymore this is 2015 and if people want to pay to see girl on a poll dancing in a club so be it. Them never put a gun to no ones head and say come pay ya money to watch, it’s about time the police stop making up they own rules too cause I notice them does tell you that u can’t walk the road late at night like if them giving curfews these days, a friend of mind on his way to the gas station to buy bread and them hold de man and rough he up asking he what he doing out so late, man say he going for bread at the gas station them ask he why so late. I and everyone on this Island have the right to leave our homes at any given time, cause if we was white them wouldn’t had stop we.

    The article mentioned immigration officers, or you guys didn’t see that?

    Normally those raids which are not new, is a joint operation because those immigration officials do need protection too based on the environment they are going into.

    Which illegal immigrant you know that will willingly go with officials to be deported?

    Stop being petty ladies and gentlemen. Please!
