Myrie sues Barbados
Shanique Myrie, the Jamaican woman who claimed that she was abused by immigration officials at an airport in Barbados last March, has filed a lawsuit against the Barbadian Government.
The matter is to be heard by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).
Myrie is being represented by the law firm Hylton and Brown. The firm says it will be seeking, among other things, monetary damages for its client.
It will be seeking to have the CCJ determine the minimum standard of treatment to be given to CARICOM nationals moving within the region under the Revised Treat of Chaguaramas and its goal of hassle-free travel. (Jamaica Gleaner)
