Myrie time


Share post:

IMMIGRATION DEPARTMENT officials from Barbados who came into contact with Shanique Myrie will be the featured witnesses when the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) sets up shop in Barbados tomorrow and Tuesday.
And for the high-powered legal team representing the Barbados Government in the matter, the next two days will be all about proving that there was no cavity search of Myrie when the Jamaica woman came to Barbados a little over two years ago.
“We will lead evidence to show there was no cavity search at all. That will be the most important testimony when the court is here in Barbados,” lead attorney Roger Forde told the SUNDAY SUN in an interview yesterday.
Alicia Jordan, an immigration officer at Grantley Adams International Airport when Myrie arrived from Jamaica, is expected to provide pivotal testimony in the case against the Barbados Government.Forde said he was satisfied with how the case had gone so far and convinced the two days of testimony here would go a long way in vindicating the defendants.
