ST VINCENT and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves has slammed some regional immigration officers for their treatment of Caricom nationals, saying some should be sanctioned and retrained.
Those who cannot function in the post should be placed elsewhere, he recommended.
Gonsalves’ comments to the SATURDAY SUN come in the wake of fresh complaints by at least two Jamaican women and a pregnant Guyanese about their treatment at the Grantley Adams International Airport.
He said the real problem was not regional governments but rather lay with the refusal of some immigration officers to carry out the law as specified in the Caribbean Court of Justice case involving Jamaican Shanique Myrie, who challenged her treatment in Barbados and subsequently won the case.
