Sex workers in Barbados are fearful of being attacked and abused while plying their trade and are not convinced that law enforcement officials are doing enough to protect them from criminal elements on the streets.
That’s according to President of the Global Adult Industry Association Charles Charlie Spice Lewis who said police should be encouraged to ramp up patrols in areas where sex workers are known to operate.
The comments came in the wake of 44-year-old Guyanese sex worker Caroline Baird being killed last Friday night.
“This has been very frustrating for me over the years because it’s already hard to get the authorities to give us an audience. But it’s very disheartening when my own people find it difficult to come together. But I think police should be encouraged to do more patrols in the areas where sex workers operate,” Lewis said.
