CCJ to wrap up hearing in Shanique Myrie case
2012-12-12 09:23:46 | (0 Comments)
The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) is to wrap up its case management hearing into the Shanique Myrie case today.
Shanique Myrie has taken the Barbadian Government to the CCJ on allegations that she was assaulted by an immigration officer last year.
Myrie has accused Barbadian border officials of assaulting her during a cavity search at the Grantley Adams International Airport on March 14 last year.
She also claims that she was subjected to forceful and brutish language by airport officials on her arrival.
Myrie wants the CCJ to determine the minimum standard of treatment to be given to CARICOM nationals, moving within the region under the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas and its goal of hassle-free travel.
In April, the court awarded legal cost to Myrie after the Barbadian government conceded that she had a case.
The Jamaican Government has been granted leave to join the proceedings.
The government said its decision is aimed at protecting the interest of Jamaicans.
