The court has ordered the dismissal of Lieutenant David Harewood.

Earlier today, the 18-year veteran of the Barbados Defence Force was found guilty at the end of his court martial at St Ann’s Fort, Garrison, St Michael.

Harewood, who is attached to the Barbados Coast Guard, was found guilty of neglect to the prejudice of good order and military discipline by not informing his superiors about a threat to Ordinary Seaman Marlon Scott.

He was also found guilty of engaging in conduct that prejudiced the good order and military discipline by carrying out unauthorised information-gathering operations at various locations between January 1, 2018 and September 30, 2018.

A six-member CARICOM military panel conducted the court martial. (AC)
