    Thanks Sargeant, almost six years for the UN to confirm what was generally known in the country and region. What is disappointing is that the UN would play politics at this stage as far as taking responsibility is concerned.

    Haiti, forever a persecuted country according to Zoe.

    Barbados accused again !!!!!!

    Under the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas and a 2007 Caricom decision, Caricom nationals are entitled to enter Caricom member states, “without harassment or the imposition of impediment, and to stay for up to six months.”

    More shite.

    “Alvin Brown, who came to Canada from Jamaica 32 years ago when he was 8, has been detained at Toronto East Detention Centre since September 2011, after he served a jail sentence for robbery and lost his permanent resident status.

    The government wants to deport him following a robbery conviction but Jamaica won’t issue him travel documents.”

    @ David,

    The problem with this “story” is that it spreads across the internet.

    The Government must act swiftly to clarify what really occurred.

    Time to video / record all interactions with people who are detained by immigration.
