DNA testing stirring controversy in Barbados

The following is an edited excerpt.

Breaking his silence on the minister’s criticisms, Boyce said yesterday that “no politician with  a temporary lease” on authority should behave  the way Brathwaite did.

Boyce also found it ironical that Brathwaite had rejected his DNA testing idea as lacking substance when “his own Government” had awarded the former Chief Education Officer a Gold Crown  Of Merit for outstanding community work.
