Man accused of insulting Senator

COURT TODAY BLOCKThe case against a man accused of insulting a Government Senator has been adjourned until January 19.

Barry Merrith Wallace DePeiza, 47, returned before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court yesterday but his matter could not continue since the final prosecution witness was on holiday, Station Sergeant Neville Watson said.

DePeiza, of Fairfield Road, Black Rock, St Michael denied using insulting language toward Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner on January 16, 2013.

The accused allegedly said: “Irene Sandiford you is a dog; all of wunna up there is real dogs,” while within the precincts of Parliament.

When the gardener first went before Magistrate Douglas Frederick, he was granted $2 500 bail and ordered to stay away from the Parliament buildings. Those conditions continue.

DePeiza is being represented by attorney-at-law Gregory Nicholls.

    Wow!!! Three years & a simple case like this not completed yet. The Court truly has made a mockery of our justice system. I don’t believe that a more incompetent institution exist in Barbados.

    Freedom of speech and freedom of expression is oblivious to the citizens of this authoritarian state. This police state. These are the kinds of people we elect depots to say the least. In this the entire parliament and judicial system are criminal.

    Why don’t we all be programmed like how the rest of us are. If that is his opinion why should he be charged for it? This country’s Court Judges put murderers on bail, and while they are on bail, they go and kill again who should be held accountable? But we charging people for calling someone a dog. Wtf am i hearing. They say if the HEAD is bad the body is Sick.

    Let me not go near Parliament do. Because Barry what you said was tame. Anyway Barry, sue the government of Barbados back at the CCJ or the Inter-America Court of Human Rights and become a millionaire. Say they took away your rights under Chapter 4 of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Barbados. The government has to prove this statement is slanderous. Good luck. This is just people in high places pushing bout’ their power. The court of Barbados is a JOKE so side step it and go to another court that Barbados gave jurisdiction.

    Some people must learn to respect Authority figures. What a bad example he is setting for our youth

  13. lswiltshire October 31, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    Oh dear it is the dog who should be taking him to court for insulting dogs.

  15. Bajan boy October 31, 2015 at 3:28 pm

    Island Gal if I knew who you were I would find you and kiss you. The poor dog should be ashamed that he is associated with any of them for that matter…

    I just happen to love dogs generally, and my two half-breeds (cheese-on-bread, I hope I doan get lock-up fun dat)…especially. This cud reach the CCJ, and bring de whole uh Buhbaydus…into great and high repute!

    I suppose he used the wrong animal name.

  18. Rick November 1, 2015 at 8:48 am

    Of course the courts can find the time for this BS…..dont worrk about the back log os serioys cases. The fact that he wad given bail for this BS that should nit have even made it to the courts says a lot about the “legal system” ….why would bail need to be given for something like this?

  19. kathy-Ann Clarke November 3, 2015 at 7:52 am

    Lol,this is just so funny. Another wasted case being put back until later. So, with all the other back logs that we have, gives me more reasons to keep far as ever from the Courts. It is just a total waste of people’s time.
