The man in charge of the daily running of Grantley Adams International Airport has testified that all airport cameras were fully functional on March 14, 2011, when Jamaican Shanique Myrie first arrived in Barbados.
Joseph Johnson, who has worked at Grantley Adams for more than three decades and is now the chief operations officer, told the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) yesterday that the cameras were not newly installed, and had been in place and working from around 2005 when a new terminal began operations.
He was being cross-examined in the No. 1 Supreme Court on the first day of the Barbados leg of the CCJ’s hearing of Myrie’s lawsuit against the Barbados Government.
Myrie is claiming that she was discriminated against because of her nationality, and also subjected to a body cavity search by Immigration Department officials when she arrived in Barbados.
