(Barbados Nation) The Caribbean Court of Justice has granted Jamaican Shanique Myrie leave to bring her case against the Barbados Government.

Shanique Myrie

This was announced a short while ago at the Barbados Supreme Court.

Myrie’s lawyers have 14 days to file and it is expected that the hearing could come off around July this year.

The 24-year-old Jamaican has alleged she was finger raped by a female Immigration officer, insulted, and then denied entry to Barbados on March 14.

Myrie’s lawyers, led by Michelle Brown, argued before a packed court house earlier today that Myrie’s rights were infringed when she was not only refused entry to Barbdos last year but was also discriminated against.
