Government has to do what is necessary to ensure that the security and the morals of the Barbadian society are protected.
Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Immigration Senator Darcy Boyce made that declaration today on the heels of last weekend’s raid of an adult entertainment club by officers of the Royal Barbados Police Force and the Immigration Department.
“We had to make sure that those persons who attempted to breach security were taken away from such activity. We say that, and it may sound light-hearted, but that puts us in a situation where we attract unwanted international attention when persons are engaged in that kind of activity. In such cases we are not sure whether they entered into such actions voluntarily,” he said.
Boyce made the comments as he led off debate on the Immigration (Amendment) Bill, 2014 in the Upper Chamber.
