Clearance cancelled

Shanique Myrie was actually cleared to enter Barbados when she first arrived in the country two years ago.
But that clearance was cancelled moments later, after it was determined by Immigration Department officials at the Grantley Adams International Airport that the Jamaican woman had misrepresented information regarding who would be her host during her proposed 15-day stay in Barbados.
That information was revealed to the Caribbean Court of Justice yesterday by senior immigration officer Merlo Reid, as Myrie’s discrimination case against the Government of Barbados entered its third day at the Supreme Court.
Myrie is claiming she was discriminated against on her arrival on March 14, 2011, and that she was subjected to a humiliating body cavity search before being detained and deported to Jamaica the next day.
