CCJ to rule on Myrie case today
The eagerly-awaited ruling in the landmark case involving Shanique Myrie is to be delivered today by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).
Myrie, a Jamaican national, has accused Barbadian immigration officers of sexually assaulting and verbally abusing her at the Grantley Adams International Airport on March 14, 2011.
Her lawyers have asked the court to award her up to a $1 million dollars in damages.
The announcement will be done via video link-up with the Justices of the regional court in Port-of-Spain. Myrie and her lawyers will hear the reserved judgment in Kingston while Barbados government attorneys will be informed of the court’s ruling here simultaneously.
