Jamaican detained at Immigration Centre alleges 'inhumane treatment'

A Jamaican, who has spent the past six months in detention in Trinidad after being arrested for overstaying his time, has charged that he and his countrymen and women are being held in inhumane conditions in the Immigration Detention Centre (IDC).

According to the Jamaican, the inmates are desperate to return home as they have been abandoned by the Jamaica authorities and claim they are being treated like hogs by the Trinidadians.

The claims are being made in an article published by the Jamaican Gleaner today.
