JAMAICA'S former Honorary Consul to Barbados Marlon Gordon says his staunch advocacy on behalf of Jamaican nationals who are being discriminated against in that eastern Caribbean country cost him his post.
Gordon resigned in a huff as Jamaica's consular representative in that country in January, and the Barbados government had been less than welcoming of him because of what he says is his 'no-nonsense' stance on their wholesale disdain for Jamaicans.
"The Barbados government is upset because I talk up. They have made the post vacant in circumstances which have now exposed the Jamaican public to abuse. It is quite obvious that the government doesn't want anybody to stand up," he told the Observer.
Gordon was responding to queries by this newspaper about the treatment of his countrymen in Barbados after Jamaican Shanique Myrie recounted a horrific experience at the Grantley Adams Airport earlier this month.She told the Observer she was subjected to a humiliating body search, bad-mouthed and locked up before being booted out of the island without explanation.
