Barbados

1997 Barbados

According to Countryaah, in 2013, Barbados and Caricom called on European colonial states to pay compensation for hundreds of years of slavery. Denmark and the other colonial states ignored the invitation.

Two robbers, Adrian Mottley and Jamar Headley, were subjected to torture by police at the Hastings police station in Christ Church in March. The purpose of the torture was apparently to allow them to admit robbery other than the one robbery they had already acknowledged.

Barbados has continued to face the death penalty in its criminal code. If convicted of treason or murder, the only possible punishment is death. Along with Trinidad, Barbados is the only country in the Caribbean that continues to have this article in its criminal law.
