One Cuban migrant from a group of 13 has chosen to stay in Cayman Brac.
The Cubans were travelling on a 20 foot wooden boat that arrived in local waters sometime around 6:30 Monday (11 July) evening. Tuesday morning, the dozen chose to continue along their journey to Central America.
Government is reminding the public once again that international law prohibits the Cayman Islands from facilitating illegal migration. Local laws criminalise acts by anyone who assists illegal transportation and harbouring the movement of migrants. If you break these laws, you could face a fine of CI$50,000 and seven years imprisonment.
