Guyanese man held with drugs

A Guyanese man was handed over to immigration officials today after appearing in a Bridgetown Court and admitting to drug possession.

Loamchand Doulatram, who was residing at Bushy Park, Park St Philip, pleaded guilty to having cannabis in his possession on Saturday.

According to the police prosecutor, lawmen were in the area of Fairchild Street, The City, when they observed Doulatram standing in the area of the taxi stand. As lawmen approached, he dropped a plastic bag which was later retrieved and found to contain four greaseproof wrappings of cannabis.

Asked to give account for having the contraband, Doulatram admitted ownership of the drugs.

After speaking with Magistrate Douglas Frederick, the prosecutor informed the court that Doulatram had been living in the country for the last five years without the proper documentation.

The 53-year-old farmer arrived in Barbados back in 2012 and was granted a 30-day stay on a work permit. However, the permit expired and was never renewed.

Doulatram was handed over to immigration officers who were present in the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court after the magistrate convicted, reprimanded and discharged him on the charge.

      I actually have a few guyanese friends! And they are not so bad…. Then there are the ones that pretend to befriend u but actually hates your guts just because u r a bajan! Dont get tie up! I have met some of those, cause the most havoc you could imagine without you giving them cause! But so long as the person has not done me anything directly, and I have not seen them frigging up anyone else, I usually give them the benefit of the doubt……

    he had a couple of spliffs. Big deal, so what? Thats the reason to ruin a 50 year old man life? People so backward, stop living in the 1950’s wake up and realize what the rest of the world is doing. At this point the government has destroted Bim so bad the only hope for it is the money that legalization would generate. But of course Barbados going in the opposite direction hard.

      Sharon Taylor i disagree with your statement. Marijuana i think, needs to be decriminalize In Barbados… and if the world for deport all illegal Barbadian immigrants, Barbados would have nowhere for them to go and would nor be able to provide jobs for them. The underground economy is a thriving economy that is needed. It provides services that legal citizens don’t want to do and at below minimum wage. Lots of small business benefit from this. I think we waste resources. I say plant fields of marijuana and develop, market and sell products made from such.

All the things mentioned are actually produced from hemp not Mary Jane…. Hemp is the cousin of marijuana…. U are disagreeing with our laws not my statement…. If ya illegal and ya get deport, well so be it…. We got thousands of illegal immigrants, so we would put dem out and tek back our own! Nuff ppl hate this little island, its ppl and glad dat we sinking right now…. I already know that, but like a Phoenix we shall rise again!

      Isolene Evans i respect your right to your opinion. You don’t know anything about me and clearly is very closed minded and therefore folk such as yourself is unteachable. Marijuana is a billion dollar business in many countries and it is not used for recreational purposes only. it is used for medicinal purposes like cancer. It is the same approach many of you are having worth the seaweed on our beaches… look for the good in everything.
      So if you can please do your research and seek first to understand in order to be understood. Don’t read to react, read too understand.

      Your opinion accepted. Hanging people never stopped killing, just like the lethal injection and the electric chair have not. But i will not go into debate about that because we can agree to disagree. The laws In bim are the laws and i don’t agree with a lot of the laws. I don’t like the government, nor the way poor folks are being screwed but i accept what is. All of this however will not make me stop from speaking out …
      Hemp, marijuana… have you been to Canada, usa, netherland etc etc…?

      Capital punishment has never been proven to be a deterrent to crime anywhere in the world, including Barbados. It’s funny sharon Taylor says monkey say monkey do has not worked out for Barbados. EXACTLY!! Time for rational constructive thinking. Bim will not rise because you will it so, Lol. Productive policies and new revenue streams and constructive thinking is what will make Bim rise.The Caribbean as a whole was put under pressure by the US to cut down on canibus production. They then went on to legalize it in certain states, fully controlling and regulating the market and generating huge amounts of income. They have flourished from the marijuana industry while our government is believing in the propaganda of yesteryear, eyes wide shut smh.

    What is wrong with people? One spliff or two. The law is the law of the land. Abide by the law or suffer the consequences.
    Stop making excuses for criminals. The law must be up held.

    I am going to pretend I did not see all the hateful comments here about Guyanese people and go right to the point . Marijuana is ILLEGAL in Barbados as a matter of fact is it also ILLEGAL in Guyana too so if a person do not want to go jail then I say respect the laws of that country whether you agree with them or not , especially if you are illegal . He is a stupid irresponsible man and at his age and given his situation he should know better . Yes, I agree charge him and send him packing because he is a damn fool and a disgrace to his country . So whether GUYANESE or not people need to understand when you immigrate to another country regardless if its for work or play or you choose to make that country your home and source of personal growth you need to respect that country’s laws . You need to respects it’s citizens you need to understand that you don’t belong so you try your best to integrate and respect it’s culture and contribute positively to that country .
