The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) will continue to hear evidence in the case of Shanique Myrie, when it sits in Barbados tomorrow.
Myrie, a Jamaican, has taken the Government of Barbados to court on allegations that she was assaulted by an immigration officer in 2011.
Over the next two days, the CCJ will hear from Barbados Immigration department officials who came in contact with Miss Myrie when she landed at the Grantley Adams International Airport in March 2011.
The Barbados legal team is seeking to prove that there was no cavity search of Myrie when she landed in Barbados in 2011.
Alicia Jordan, an immigration officer who was at Grantley Adams International Airport when Myrie arrived from Jamaica, is expected to testify during the two-day sitting.
Lead attorney for the Barbados Government, Roger Forde, has said he is satisfied with the proceedings of the case to date and is convinced that the Court's sitting in Barbados will assist in vindicating the defendants.
The CCJ wrapped up hearings in Jamaica on March 6.
