Myrie may go to Barbados for CCJ case

(Barbados Nation) Shanique Myrie, the Jamaican woman who has accused Barbadian Immigration authorities of carrying out an unlawful cavity search and denying her entry last March 14, could be back into Barbados next month.

That’s when her case is scheduled to go before the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).

In a surprise move, the Trinidadian-based court announced yesterday that it would be holding its first sitting away from its Port of Spain headquarters, and Barbados would be the itinerant location.

“The move reduces the travelling costs of attorneys and litigants in some instances and, more importantly, brings the CCJ closer to the people that is serves,” a release from the court said.
