No bail for Bahamian immigration officer charged with rape of Jamaican

The Senior Immigration Officer charged with the rape of a 28 year old Jamaican woman at his house in December in the Bahamas was denied bail when he appeared in court on Thursday afternoon.

Norman Bastian,53, appeared before Magistrate Andrew Forbes.

It is expected that the matter will proceed by way of a voluntary bill of indictment which means that a preliminary inquiry will be by-passed and the matter will be fast tracked to the supreme court for trial.

The incident happened when the woman was detained and released after an immigration raid on a bar in Nassau.

It's alleged the immigration officer then took the Jamaican woman to his house where he raped her before releasing her two days later.

Bastian is expected back to court on February 23.

Why should they sue the Bahamas Government? The officer was arrested and charged so the law is being followed! I do not agree with rape at all but it is being dealt with in the courts!

Rape is abominable, inhumane and otherwise indescribably horrible. Violators maybe/should be castrated, but 1st tortured and humiliated. It's different from humiliated and tortured, and that would be 2nd. Third, repeat steps 1&2, then randomize them 4- more times (damn, I am on a roll)! Lock them up according to the age of their victims unless the victims are under single digits - then multiply by 3. Adult victims will be a multiple of 2. After every 4 months, repeat steps 1&2. If the violater is terminal at the time of the offense, try to initiate the punishment sooner. The surviving victim(s) may not terminate the procedures at any time. Aptitudes of violators may be considered, but not excluded.
Just sayin..

What is wrong with people?  There are women out there that will give you a piece willingly, why do you have to violate a woman?  That is not power!
