Letter: Thirteen Jamaicans deported
Published on December 2, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

I am waiting to see if the Jamaican government and the 13 Jamaicans who were kicked out of Trinidad will take their case to the CCJ just as was done with Barbados where a single Jamaican was denied entry.

I am waiting!

It is known that we in the Caribbean can at times be very hypocritical. All of us can remember that fire and brimstone was called down upon Barbados when Myrie was given her walking papers by Immigration here in Barbados for good cause. Even the Jamaican government which does not recognize the CCJ turned to the CCJ in order to exact punishment on Barbados.

Now we see not one but thirteen Jamaicans booted from Trinidad under similar circumstances just like what obtained in the Myrie case. So far nary a word from the Jamaican government.

It would appear to me that the Trinidadians are permitted by the Jamaican government to deport any amount of Jamaicans but the Bajan government must accept all Jamaicans.
