Guyanese nationals charged with raping girl

Two Guyanese nationals, a man and woman, are now on remand after appearing in a Bridgetown Court on a rape charge.

It is alleged that Carla Alexis Martin, 37, and Sean Christopher Nelson, 29, both of Kings Street, St Michael, had sexual intercourse with a female on June 11, knowing that she did not consent to the act or was reckless as to whether she consented.

The two were not required to plead to the indictable charge when they appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Wednesday.

Prosecutor in the case, Sergeant Cameron Gibbons, objected to bail on several grounds, including the seriousness of the offence and the alleged victim’s tender age.

However, Martin, in her application for bail, told Magistrate Cuffy-Sergeant that she knew nothing “bout what the girl say ‘bout me”, while Nelson submitted that they would not be in the area and “will not interfere”
with the complainant, even as he denied having any knowledge of what was being alleged.

However, their applications were denied and the two were remanded to prison until July 12.

    Some barbadians believe that bajans are all Christians, docile and stupid that they don`t know about committing any criminal acts, its always some other persons from other countries, I`m not saying that this is the case here. Check the jail and let me know if bajans are out numbered, what bad name? bajans lose that title since 1976.

    Beckles, who the hell are you calling those degrading names? When one your national raped and killed a few of our small children I didn’t hear a peep from you or your country. Every country has some very very bad people so your isn’t about the law. Why they effing you think your country is struggling now apart from not being tourist favorite destination anymore? Cos you all kick out the Guyanese who were willing to pay to live in the fowl pens you were renting them or going to you all parties or what’s not and buy your stupid food and drink. So your economic is bad now cos we living in other countries broken down homes and buying their food now. So you better make sure that they few who are there don’t leave.

    Enough is enough.

    I don’t care if these alleged rapist are legal or illegal Guyanese living in Barbados but the solution is deportation.

    Deport all the Guyanese who commit crime in Barbados and deport all the illegal Guyanese living in Barbados.

    Enough is enough.

    @ Jillian & Deborah, decades ago we had citizens from Dominica, St. Vincent, and St. Lucia who made Barbados home. Like the Guyanese, and Jamaicans we welcomed them, they lived in the same areas of the city that most of you now live, in fact the small rooms you all now rent belong to some of these very persons.

    The difference is they worked hard, paid their N I S and taxes, built relationships, some got married and raised families. In other words they willingly integrated into our communities. Some of the Guyanese, and Jamaicans come here, they want to trick the system, the people, and do as they like because they spend their money at bars on weekends. Difference is though, those earlier mentioned never got into trouble with the law, or were before the courts so frequently like the Guyanese and Jamaicans who come here these days.

    Some of you are giving your fellow citizens a bad reputation, so it’s not our fault that you feel the way you do. If you don’t change you will suffer the same fate wherever you go. So if you are among those already gone, then good riddance, and best of luck to you. you.

      LAW AND ORDER – I am writing as a GUYANESE JOURNALIST and a CARICOM CITIZEN. We often forget that we are supposed to be CITIZENS OF THE CARIBBEAN.

      Guyanese citizens, who have had to leave Guyana over the last 30 years or more have lived in Barbados – observing most of the LAWS and RULES of the Barbadian society.

      But there are those, a minority, who have abused the hospitality of the host country. They should be dealt with, accordingly, for breaking the law.

      Guyanese, who indulge in the drug trade must be incarcerated, but must be given a fair trial. Justice delayed is justice denied. However, there are reports emanating from relatives, who said that the arrested persons are normally brutally beaten for by the arresting police officers, to extract information, contrary to the constitution of Barbados and the UN Convention on Human Rights.

      The absolute truth is – CARICOM is not working and is not led by the kind of leadership its citizens, as an integrated COMMUNITY, would demand. There has been lots of integration- through inter-marriages and business partnerships by the respective citizens, but the governments have not taken that into account and have not brought our economies closer to function in our interest.

      The rice and other products that Guyanese produce are not given the fixed trade relationship that are required by the Caricom agreements. Integration has no meaning to its citizens – due to the non-functioning of the INTEGRATION PROCESS. Our leaders talk and talk, but very little gets done.

      The Guyanese who run-away to find employment in Guyana and produce food to supply the entire caribbean, but there is no AGRICULTURAL POLICIES that allow us to meet the FOOD DEMANDS of our people.

      Our Government in Guyana talks about AGRO-INDUSTRY, but there is no real effort to achieve these goals. The people of Guyana are left on their own to achieve the goals set by our governments.

      ONLY THROUGH PEOPLE’S EMPOWERING THEMSELVES CAN THEY FREE THEMSELVES FROM THE VESTIGES OF COLONIALISM.

    @ Harry, from the beginning that’s how I understood it. Perhaps many took it for granted that the name Beckles is Bajan. And that’s the irony of it. Many of the Guyanese with so called “Bajan surnames” are descendants of the many Bajans who had immigrated to British Guyana. As Prime Minister Harold Wilson, would have put it, “Our kith and kin”
    By the way, there was a story in the Nation last week , where a Bajan landowner is claiming that many rich foreigners, with million dollar homes, are squatting on his land down in the Sunset Crest area.
    A horse of a different colour,eh!

    I know Sean personally and a lot of people from west bank/ Westcost of Guyana know him as well, he’s a motorcycle mechanic,a devout church member, real public spirited person, no criminal record of any type, don’t take my word ask anyone who u think my know him. Now that doesn’t mean he is not capable of this act, I’m just saying I don’t believe and u guys don’t be too quick to judge

    There is too much insularity in our Islands. I know several Guyanese families who live very peacefully in Barbados and provide very useful contributions to our economy. Also families from Jamaica, St Vincent, Grenada, St Lucia, England, America, Venezuela and Dominica. I have read some very unfortunate messages written above and I know that when I was growing up people cared for each other more….no matter which Country they were from. One of the major problems that we face over here is very uncaring sections of the media who thrive on sensationalism. Like this case and the Government’s new transport for the Prime Minister which have received no coverage at all in orher sections of the media.

    Those who commit crime are wrong, but not all Guyanese are wicked or evil. I am kith and kin, but I won’t be coming to Barbados to live. It is obvious there is some amount of strong dislike for my people (Guyanese and other Caribbean nationals) in Barbados however when you get to Guyana you are treated with love and respect. You should start to review the way you speak to and treat Guyanese. Most of us don’t want to come to Barbados or live, we are even scared to do a holiday in you country because of the immigration treatment.
    News, we are expecting you in droves as the oil comes in…
