Two visitors fined $6 000 each for breaching quarantine
The two British visitors who invited a Jamaican to their Treasure Beach, Paynes Bay, St James hotel room for sex during their quarantine were each fined $6 000 when they appeared in the District ‘D’ Magistrates’ Court today.
Julia Knightley and Andrew Luker, who were both staying at Treasure Beach at the time, have admitted they breached quarantine by inviting the Jamaican to their hotel room on December 30 without permission.
Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes, who stressed that while their breach was serious it was not as serious as Zara Holland’s, fined them $6 000 in seven days or nine months in prison.
He released each quarantine breaker on $10 000 bail to allow them time to sort out payment of the fines. (HLE)
