Hope Garcia will get nod to return

IF?RAUL?GARCIA?wants to return to Barbados, it will be at the discretion of the Barbados Government.
That was the response of Garcia’s lawyer, David Comissiong, when he was asked the possibility of the Cuban-born man, who spent 20 years in Barbados’ prison system for the importation, possession and trafficking in cocaine, returning to Barbados.
Comissiong had also secured Garcia’s release from an immigration detention centre into a private home through the Courts.
Garcia left for his homeland under the supervision of two immigration officers after checking in at the Caribbean Airlines counter at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday.
“He will be able to come back to Barbados if the Government permits him to return. I know that he would wish to . . . visit,” Comissiong said.
“He has made many good friends who took him into their homes over the past six months and he would wish to return to visit them.”
