Call for stronger immigration ties


Share post:

A Bridgetown magistrate has called for greater cooperation among regional immigration departments as a Jamaican national said he was a pawn in a criminal credit card ring.

“There should be some sort of sharing, there should be something,” Magistrate Douglas Frederick said after he was told that Allisteir Hakeam Stephen Mighty had been recruited by a group, who used the promise of money, in exchange for committing acts of credit card fraud in Barbados.

“Immigration will have to work on that. I didn’t know that this thing was so widespread that they would send somebody with credit cards. It is in the public’s interest to have this thing sorted out,” he added.

Mighty, a 25-year-old self-employed man, of Portmore Villas, Gregory Park, St Catherine, Jamaica, was in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday . . . (HLE)
