Fingerprinting ‘for greater good’
THE MEASURE WAS not on the order paper for debate, but that did not stop parliamentarians from sparring over Government’s plan to introduce fingerprinting at the ports of entry.
The issue was first raised by Member of Parliament for St James South, Donville Inniss, who on Tuesday morning accused Opposition MPs of engaging in partisan politics on the matter.
Stating that the stance taken by MPs was unfortunate, he likened their position to unenlightened noise and said Barbados needed to take the issue of border security seriously.
Arguing that fingerprinting was a requirement in the United States, Inniss urged residents to face the reality that this was part of the new norm. (Willcomm)
