A Jamaican man wanted in his home country for murder and who had been hiding out in Antigua, undetected for some time, has been deported.
It was discovered that Rohan Godfrey Hill, who is a murder suspect and believed to be a member of a notorious gang in his country, was residing in Antigua for at least 8 months.
Immigration officials confirmed that the 28-year-old man arrived in Antigua 8 months ago and was granted entry for six months.
At the time he was already flagged as a wanted man in his country, but this was not detected in Antigua.
When his time ran out, Hill continued to live and work illegally at a construction site on Factory Road.
Last week, he and his girlfriend left Antigua on a LIAT flight to St Lucia, and on arrival there he was denied entry because his name was flagged in the security system as someone wanted for murder.
This occurred on Saturday and both he and his girlfriend were sent back to Antigua.
Authorities in Antigua detained him until Monday when he was sent out of the country.
Jamaican authorities were said to be waiting for his arrival to question him about at least one killing and offences under the anti-gang legislation in that country.
