Shanique Myrie and Jamaica will not be backing down. This was carried in the Jamaica Observer in an article in today's website edition entitled "JA not backing down in 'finger-rape' case".
In the article, Dr. Kenneth Lee O'Neil Baugh, who is the foreign minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Jamaica, is reported to have said while speaking in that country's parliament today, that following a meeting between his ministry, Myrie, and her lawyer, he is of the opinion that her account warrants a full investigation.
A delegation, including officials from the Ministry of National Security/Passport Immigration & Citizenship Agency (PICA), is scheduled to fly to Barbados tomorrow to investigate Myrie's allegation that she was subjected to verbal abuse and two cavity searches by a Barbadian immigration officer.

Also invited to the discussions will be Trinidad-based, Her Excellency Sharon Saunders, High Commissioner for Jamaica appointed to Trinidad and Tobago
High Commissioner Saunders held the position of Deputy High Commissioner to the United Kingdom prior to her appointment in Trinidad and Tobago, and has served for thirty (30) years in the Jamaican foreign service.
There have been further developments in this story as Shanique Myrie's Lawyer was contacted by the Nation newspaper. Myrie's attorney, Anthony Hylton, has said, "We are aware that the police are who did it".
Attorney Anthony Hylton intends to haul the Barbados government before the International Court of Human Rights. (nationnews.com)
According to history, there never a major change in anything unless people start dieing
Yes, I understand that the Barbadian police often rape visitors. A woman from Ghana was raped by the police and was never brought to justice. The government, after jailing the woman, sent her away secretly although it was proved beyond doubt that the woman was raped.
It is believed that the multi-national companies that are owned by whites from North America ans South Africa, do not want blacks to come to our country. Get real people, we really have a problem here!
THE GOVERNMENT SPONSORED RAPING OF WOMEN AT THE GRANTLEY ADAMS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN BARBADOS NEEDS TO BE FINALLY SETTLED AT THE WORLD COURT, NOT CARICOM. FOR, NOT EVEN AMONG THE MOST BRUTISH OF PEOPLE HAVE WE EVER HEARD OF ANYTHING LIKE THIS IN MODERN TIMES. WORST, SINCE MAXINE MCCLEAN, THEIR FOREIGN MINISTER, IS BEHIND THE MOVE IN ORDER FOR 'CERTAIN' TYPES FROM COMING TO VISIT BARBADOS.
Does that make any sense? Now they are
hurling accusations at the police.
Miss Myrie has already committed public slander
against the airports immigration
and the customs agents in the news defaming them
& calling them liar!
Jamaicans insinuated in the news
that Barbados was lying earlier
this week when Mr. Husbands said
after his investigation that were no records
that "customs or immigration agent" performed a
cavity search on Miss Myrie.
So now Miss Myrie's team is saying that it was the POLICE?
They owe Mr. Husbands, the Barbados immigration
& custom workers an apology if they were telling the truth!
Who will Miss Myrie accuse next of finger rape?
Put your self in the position, I know its your country, but Please get your head from so high up under your ass.... so how many persons were there? Does not having a record means that the airport official is telling the truth.... what if it was the other way around
