National Security Minister Edmund Dillon is presumed to be considering a report concerning apparent sick-out action by immigration officers at the Piarco International Airport on Sunday. Two out of 15 officers showed up for work, leaving passengers waiting for several hours before they were able to clear immigration.
The Minister has already warned that action will be taken according to the contents of the report, which was submitted by Chief Immigration Officer Charmaine Ghandhi-Andrews.
He adds that anyone found culpable for the incident, or immigration officers found to have acted contrary to the Immigration Act will be dealt with.
PSA President Watson Duke meanwhile has refused to say what he believes the report may uncover but is again warning those in authority to leave the immigration officers alone.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show, Mr. Duke was tight lipped on whether he knew what was behind the action of the officers, but insisted that the officers did nothing wrong.
Mr. Duke accuses the National Security Minister of looking for a scapegoat rather than examining the real problem facing the Immigration Division.
Officials are yet to say what the report contains. It has since been submitted to the Prime Minister for his perusal.
