    “The perception of Barbados as all fun and sun in paradise has certainly changed for Canadian visitors Jan and Cyndi Oster, who claimed they had been cheated of $2,500, used as security deposit for their accommodation here.”

    @ Hants

    De ole man like many pretend journalists here has been saying this specific thing that the US Embassy openly stated for the longest time about government(s) practice of not reporting crime against whlte people and tourisesses cause dem want to maintain an image of calm and peaceful existence

    (You do know that I still trying to get a job down at the Nation but you dun know that my articles here do not endear the ole man to them. I feel that Carl Moore spoil my chances)

    “…A report by America’s Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) last year stated that crime was a ‘major concern’ in Caribbean islands such as Barbados.

    “The OSAC report stated: ‘The news media in Barbados is reluctant to report criminal incidents against visitors that could have a negative impact on the tourism industry’, adding that: ‘Many tourists report being harassed by individuals attempting to sell illegal narcotics..”

    Of course Adriel Nitwit the Attorney General will say something like “…There were 31 murders on the 285,000 population island in 2015 and 300 robberies, compared to 28 and 362 respectively in St Lucia, which has around 100,000 less residents…”
