Cameroonian Migrants’ Bodies Cremated Without Consent After Boat Tragedy in Antigua


Relatives of three Cameroonian migrants who died in March during an illegal boat journey from Antigua to the USVI are alleging their bodies were cremated without consent.

These migrants were part of a larger group that arrived in Antigua from Nigeria.

The cremations took place in St Kitts in June after the boat capsized.

Families were unaware of the cremation until Deputy Commissioner of Police Cromwell Henry informed them afterward due to a communication breakdown.

The police retain the ashes but refuse to cover costs for sending them to Cameroon. The investigation is now with Antiguan and Barbudan authorities.

  1. Editor, there was no Boat Tragedy in Antigua waters. The Boat Tragedy was in St. Kitts waters.
    Yes, the boat left from Antigua, but your headline doesn’t say or suggest that. In fact, your headline is very misleading.
