After being denied entry to Jamaica, leader of the radical Muslim movement Jamaat al Muslemeen, Yasin Abu Bakr, was sent back to Trinidad yesterday via a privately charted plane courtesy of the Jamaican government.
According to a report by Irie FM, the Jamaican government admitted that it paid US $36,000.00 or approximately $4 million Jamaican for a private plane to take leader of the Jamaat Al Muslimeen back to Trinidad.
Jamaican authorities said he was denied entry to Jamaica in the interest of National Security.
It was first revealed in the Trinidad media that their government had denied the request to pay the fees to hire the aircraft to transport Abu Bakr home.
According to The Trinidad Express, the country’s National Security Minister Gary Griffith said the Jamaican request was made through Trinidad’s High Commissioner Iva Gloudon.
Griffith said at a Post Cabinet Press Conference Wednesday that it was the first time the Trinidad and Tobago authorities knew about the decision to deport Abu Bakr.
The National Security Ministry confirmed the government paid the US $36,000.00 fee to return Abu Bakr.
Abu Bakr and his group Jamaat Al Muslimeen attempted to take over the Trinidadian government in July 1990.
