An immigration officer has been charged in connection with human trafficking cases in Barbados.
Thirty eight year old Ryan Rudolph Jordan of Bagatelle Park, St. James appeared in court today, after being charged with misconduct in public office.
His arrest is part of ongoing police investigations into the human trafficking of five Guyanese women last month. Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector David Welch, said the probe followed an operation at a bar in Nelson Street, The City on April 18.
Jordan was granted bail in the sum of $5,000 with one surety, and ordered to be back in court on September 5. (EJ)
