Conviction, dismissal in Barbados Defence Force

A Barbados Defence Force court-martial has sentenced a lieutenant to be dismissed the service, according to this report. He had been charged with communicating with the enemy (who would that have been?), but that allegation was dropped. Instead, he was
found guilty of neglect to the prejudice of good order and military discipline by not informing his superiors about a threat to a junior Coast Guard member; and engaging in conduct that prejudiced the good order and military discipline by carrying out unauthorized information-gathering operations at various locations between January 1, 2018 and September 30, 2018.
Interestingly, the six-member panel was drawn from several CARICOM member states. The defense says it will appeal once command review has been completed.
