Immigration officer arrested

A Cayman Islands immigration officer was arrested last week and charged with violating the islands’ Immigration Law.

The female officer, who had not been officially identified at press time, was due to appear in court Tuesday.

She is accused of employing someone without a work permit, a criminal offence in the Cayman Islands. Immigration officials also accused the officer of obstructing their investigation into the matter.

The officer was arrested Wednesday at immigration headquarters on Elgin.
