The immigration officer who interviewed Shanique Myrie when the Jamaican came to Barbados in 2011 became suspicious because the visitor was travelling here for the first time, and had also met the person who planned to host her on the Internet.
This was revealed to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) yesterday by Grade 3 Immigration Officer Alicia Young, on the second day of testimony in Myrie’s discrimination suit against the Barbados Government.
According to Young, those two particulars were the reasons she referred Myrie to her superior officer after processing her a little over two years ago.
Young told the sitting in the No 1 Supreme Court that immigration officers had been instructed to refer passengers who had contacted their hosts on the Internet to supervisors.
