Uk Deportees Have Arrived


Approximately 17 deportees arrived, a short while ago, on the island from the United Kingdom, on a flight chartered by the Home Office.

This, despite a last-minute legal challenge where on Monday, February 10, the UK Court of Appeal ruled that the government should not deport the detainees. The Court heard arguments that some detainees may not have had access to legal advice.

All persons deported are Jamaican nationals who have been convicted of criminal offenses and given prison sentences of 12 months or more.
