Jamaat al Muslimeen Leader, Yasin Abu Bakr, is denying claims that he is a threat to Jamaica following that country’s decision to deny him entry earlier this week.

The Passport Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA) in Jamaica in a statement said Mr. Bakr “was refused leave to land under Section 4 (1) h of the Immigration Restriction (Commonwealth Citizens) Act”.

The section states “any person who, from information or advice which in the opinion of the Minister is reliable information or advice, is deemed by the Minister to be an undesirable inhabitant of or visitor to the island.”

The PICA said the decision to refuse leave to land “is in the interest of national security, given the present threat posed to public safety”.

However, speaking at a news briefing at the Jamaat’s Mucurapo headquarters on Friday afternoon, Mr Bakr said a political feud between Jamaica and this country over immigration issues could have contributed to the development.
