An Attorney and social activist in Barbados, David Comissiong has written to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart calling on him to outline the reasons for introducing new immigration policies that would have Barbadians fingerprinted when leaving and entering the island from April 1st this year.

In the letter, Comissiong said that he had also written to the Minister Responsible for Immigration Darcy Boyce and the former Chief Immigration Officer Erine Griffith on the issue but to date has received no response.

In his letter, which was made available to the media, Comissiong said he was informed that the Immigration (Biometrics) Regulations 2015 were made by Prime Minister Stuart in his capacity as Minister Responsible for Immigration.

He said that the move ensured “that there was absolutely no publicity about or discussion of these Regulations before or at the time they were being made”.
