RJR News has been informed that a high level meeting is underway involving the Ministry of National Security and the Passport Immigration Citizenship Agency (PICA).
Immigration officials at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay were briefed early today after a man who travelled to Liberia in the last ten days arrived there yesterday.
The man is believed to be an American who travelled to Liberia then back to the US before coming to Jamaica.
It’s understood that when he told immigration officers that he visited Liberia, he was sent to the health desk at the airport and cleared to leave.
RJR News understands that his temperature was not taken and he was asked to complete a form before being given permission to enter the country.
On leaving the airport he went to a hotel. It’s understood that later in the day, the police went to the hotel and then detained the man who is scheduled to leave the island today.
Airport workers have reportedly expressed concern about the need for training on how to handle cases where persons arrive from Ebola hot spots.
