Police Brutality Case in the Bahamas

Readers, have you been following the case of Edena Farah who was beaten by police in the Bahamas.

A petition has been started which alleges that

She was bitten and beaten by 6 police officers  in downtown Nassau, while conducting a Segway tour with tourists; a job she loved very much.  After putting 7 bogus charges on her and after going through a 2 year trial, the judge found her guilty and sentenced her to 1 year in prison!!

 

We would love to hear from our readers in the Bahamas about the public reaction to this beating and the subsequent conviction.

  1. This is unbelievable. Under what circumstances could this happen? Last year in Jamaica, a pregnant woman was shot dead by a policeman after she used bad language. The case has not come up yet…

  2. Sheri from Winnipeg, Canada says:

    This is an innocent person. She should not have been charged and should not be going to jail. What is wrong with the legal system in the Bahamas.
