Shanique Myrie - File
The lawyers representing Jamaican Shanique Myrie have now closed their case at a hearing of the Caribbean Court of Justice being held at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston.
Representatives of the Jamaica Government, which last year joined the matter, are now presenting their argument.
Lead counsel Kathy-Ann Brown says the Jamaican Government will present evidence to show that there is “a pattern of behaviour” towards Jamaicans.

She also said the Government will present evidence demonstrating that far more Jamaicans are denied entry to Barbados that any other nationals.
This morning Myrie was cross-examined for a second straight day by lead attorney for the Barbadian Government, Queens Counsel Roger Forde.

The court also heard from Myrie’s former employer Julian Jackson.
Myrie has brought the Barbadian government before the Caribbean Court of Justice claiming that a cavity search in March 2011 violated Barbadian laws, its international obligations and the revised Treaty of Chaguaramas.
The Jamaican leg of the trial ends on Friday before the matter moves to Barbados.
