Four Jamaican fugitives deported from Cayman - report

CAYMAN ISLANDS - Four Jamaican men wanted for serious criminal offences, including murder in their homeland, were removed from the Cayman Islands on Friday.

This according to a release from the Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control (CBC).

Among the men deported to Jamaica is Neville P Butler, who is wanted by the Jamaica Constabulary Force for murder.

Butler had been hiding in the Cayman Islands since July after he entered the country illegally by boat with Rudolph Shaw, who has since been deported to Jamaica and charged with one count of murder so far.

The only other named Jamaican deported on Friday is Ravan L.George, who CBC said is wanted in connection to serious offences.

The two other unnamed associates of the Jamaicans are wanted by the JCF for questioning in connection to serious offences.

One of the men was in Cayman Islands illegally, while the other was in the country on a work permit which was revoked by the relevant authorities.

The four men were arrested in Cayman during operations on August 6.

CBC said the four were escorted to Jamaica and handed over to the authorities on Friday.
