DATES AND LOCATIONS have been set for Barbados to defend itself against a lawsuit by Jamaican Shanique Myrie.
Following a case management conference yesterday morning, it was announced that the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) would hear the case from March 4 to 12 in Jamaica – the first time sitting in that country – with the trial moving to Barbados from March 18 to 22 and wrapping up at the CCJ’s Trinidad and Tobago headquarters April 8 to 9.
Myrie’s attorney at law Michelle Brown told the media she had asked for the first part of the trial to be held in Jamaica because it would be too costly for Jamaican witnesses to travel to Barbados and Trinidad.
Myrie has alleged that on March 14, 2011, she was indecently assaulted and verbally abused by immigration officers at Grantley Adams International Airport and wrongfully refused entry.Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
