Cubans pass through waters near the Brac

Another boat containing 22 Cuban migrants – 20 males and two females – was intercepted off Cayman Brac on Sunday night.

The vessel was spotted off Spot Bay around 6.50pm Sunday. The migrants, who originated in Manzanillo, Cuba, were informed by local authorities of the Cayman Islands’ immigration policies. They all appeared to be in good health, officials said.

The migrants requested, and were allowed, to perform minor repairs to their craft. They departed about 11.15 that night, destined for Honduras. They were monitored by Immigration Officers, and were last seen about 2am off the west end of Cayman Brac, travelling south-west.
