Stiff fine for fake papers
Anyone attempting to come into Barbados with falsified COVID-19 vaccine certificates or PCR tests will pay a heavy price.
Offenders could pay as much as $100 000 or face two years in prison.
The strict measures were outlined yesterday by Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley in a nationally televised press conference from Ilaro Court where she also announced that the daily 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew, which was to end tomorrow, will be extended for another two weeks.
She said some of those guilty of the offences were Barbadians who attempted to justify their actions by claiming they did it because they were late for their flight. (CLM)
