Passport fears

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada The Grenada government says it is convinced ‘undesirables’ are in possession of Grenadian passports and it is seeking to recover them as part of a campaign to have Canada lift visa restrictions imposed on nationals of this Caribbean Community (CARICOM) state.

Prime Minister Tillman Thomas made the announcement upon his return from a recent trip to North America.

‘I believe that we are going to have to do some cleaning up for ourselves with the passport, but basically the problem I believe is that there are certain persons with our passport who are questionable. But if we can really clean-up our act then the possibility exists that our status (with Canada) could be restored,’ Thomas told a news conference.

‘That is why we have to investigate. There may be persons out there who are undesirables but they are holding Grenadian passports.’
