ANOTHER JAMAICAN NATIONAL is threatening to take Barbados to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) over her alleged treatment at Grantley Adams International Airport.

Sonya King is claiming inhumane treatment meted out to her by Immigration Department officers over the weekend after arriving from Trinidad for a short vacation.

Her cries have evoked memories of the famous Shanique Myrie saga which occurred in 2011 and went all the way to the CCJ, where she won a judgment against the Barbados Government two years later. However, in King’s case, there was no incident involving a cavity search. King’s story has already made headlines in the Jamaica Observer.

The 24-year-old said she landed last Saturday night with her 14-month-old son Kaleb but was denied entry. (RA)
