This country is yet to receive an update from the Jamaican government and opposition officials there, relative to the invitation extended by this country’s national security minister, for discussions on Immigration issues.

Recently concerns were raised about the relationship between Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica.

These concerns came from Opposition Spokesman on Foreign Affairs in Jamaica, Ed Bartlett.

Mr. Bartlett expressed outrage at the treatment of Jamaicans travelling to this country.

He pointed to last month’s incident at the Piarco International Airport where 13 Jamaicans were denied entry due to alleged breaches of Trinidad and Tobago’s Immigration requirements.

Mr. Bartlett said comments attributed to this country’s National Security Minister, Gary Griffith, was of major concern to the Opposition in Jamaica.

Minister Griffith had defended the action of local Immigration officials arguing that too many Jamaica were living illegal in Trinidad and Tobago.
