    This is a stupid charge. I remember when I worked in the Home Office meeting a man from the Pine in Wandsworth Prison and immediately reporting it to the governor. He thanked me for telling him and the man remained and I got on with my job.
    This silly disciplinary offence should have been dealt with by the prison governor. This is not a criminal offence. It is a waste of the court’s time.
    If someone is a prison officer and a relative goes to prison, is that officer allowed to associate with or even speak to his relative?

      The issue is not that she spoke to the ex-con or former inmate but that she had a relationship WHILE he was STILL an inmate, which is against the law.

    That is an easy case to win.

    The Constitution of Barbados allows for freedom of Association. There is no other Law or rule of any Institution which can trump the Constitution of Barbados.
