All human trafficking detainees released


All of the detainees who were being questioned during the weekend on suspicion of human trafficking and breaching immigration and labour laws have been released.

More than 30 people were arrested late Friday night and early Saturday morning following law enforcement raids at two nightclubs.

Some were Antiguans and Barbudans and others included at least one Barbadian and several Jamaicans. Most of the detainees were women.

They were released between Sunday and yesterday.

Most of the detainees received legal representation from attorneys Leon Chaku Symister and Michael Archibald.

Symister confirmed the release of the detainees saying none of them had immigration or labour issues and that they were actually patrons at the time of the raids at the G-Spot Nightclub and the Cheetah Nightclub, both located in the capital, St John’s.

    • Wasn’t Cuitie letting off the Jamaican woman with business on Nevis Street so many times? Two wrongs don’t make a right, but don’t turn a blind eye, either!

      • Cheryl Thompson is an Antiguan and it is so unfair they bought charges against her but they raided G-Spot and the owner who was a wannabe politician charges are never bought against him

  1. You mean to tell me. I have work work Monday. Decided to go burn some cash G-Spot and them 5-0. Come bust me . For what ? Going night club illegal now. Like really. How am I suppose to explain this to my wife and my employer.
