Officer set to appeal dismissal


LIEUTENANT DAVID HAREWOOD was ordered dismissed from the Barbados Defence Force (BDF), punishment for unbecoming behaviour that could have brought the military into disrepute.

But the legal team for the commanding officer, who had a previously unblemished record and award for an act of gallantry, said it was appealing yesterday’s court martial decision in the High Court. 

In his gleaming whites, the 43-year-old Harewood stood before the CARICOM panel to hear president of the court, Lieutenant Colonel Rohan Johnson, deliver his fate with the words: “The court sentences the accused to dismissal from the Barbados Defence Force.”

It brought to an end seven days of the court martial of the 18-year veteran with the BDF, on attachment to the Barbados Coast Guard.
