iciHaiti - Bahamas : 108 Haitian boat-people apprehended in Matthew Town (Great Inagua)
On December 8, 2021 agents of the Royal Bahamas Defense Force (RBDF) discovered and apprehended 108 Haitian migrants (87 men, 20 women and 1 minor) presumed in an irregular migratory situation, arrived by sailboat on the coast near Matthew Town on Great Inagua (the main island of the Inagua district).

According to the Immigration Department, officials from the Matthew Town Department of Health, after examining all the migrants, said they were all in good health.

The Haitians were subsequently handed over to immigration officials for investigation.

In a statement, the immigration services explained "[...] A search of our database revealed that no official request to come to the territory of the bahamas had been submitted by any of the arrested migrants; therefore, it was confirmed that they all entered the Bahamas illegally [...] in violation of immigration laws."

As a result, according to the Immigration Department, all of these people will appear early next week in New Providence (the main island of the Bahamas archipelago) before the Court of First Instance, before their probable repatriation to Haiti.
