PR – Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Government, Hon. Tevin Andrews, has announced that people travelling from Carriacou and Petite Martinique will no longer be subjected to random checks by Port Police when utilizing the Tyrrel Bay Express and MV Dolly C.
This follows months of complaints by travelers that they were “harassed” when disembarking the ferries that use the CARICOM Wharf.
Minister Andrews, during a special ceremony to commission the Licensing Unit for Carriacou and Petite Martinique, said that following discussions with Prime Minister Hon. Dickon Mitchell, and after raising the issue during a Parliamentary Sitting, that the random checks will be discontinued.
He noted that residents of Carriacou and Petite Martinique are part of the State of Grenada and should be treated no different from people travelling from St. Patrick’s to St. George’s.
