19 October 2014 (RBDF) - Acting on intelligence, members of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force’s Bimini Detachment and local Police assisted Immigration Department personnel with the apprehension of nineteen (19) Cuban migrants early Sunday morning.
The Cuban Migrants were intercepted on Cat Cay after their 35-foot Bayliner motor vessel ran aground on south Cat Cay in the Bimini chain where the vessel was abandoned. A search of the immediate area resulted in the apprehension of undocumented Cuban nationals consisting of thirteen (13) males, four (4) females and two (2) children.
The migrants were subsequently taken into custody and handed over to immigration authorities at North Bimini, who organized their flight to Nassau where they will be detained for further processing.
