PROMINENT BUSINESSMAN?Jacob Hassid yesterday responded with shock and anger to union boss Sir Roy Trotman’s labelling of him as an “Egyptian Jew”, while warning that such an “unfair and unjust” attack could stir up racial hatred in the country.

The Diamonds International boss was responding to comments made by the Barbados Workers’ Union general secretary at the May Day rally held at Browne’s Beach on Tuesday.
