(CNS): Another employee from Cayman Airways has been arrested in connection with an ongoing investigation into people smuggling. An RCIPS spokesperson said Monday that a third woman from George Town who works for the National Flag Carrier was arrested that afternoon on suspicion of human smuggling. The 30-year-old woman is now in police custody. Cayman Airways said on Friday that the two women arrested last week, who have since been bailed, had been suspended from “active duties”.

Police have offered only a limited amount of information on the issue, which they have said involves overseas law enforcement agencies. The individuals allegedly smuggled out of Cayman were said to have been here legally but their departure was facilitated with the use of false identities. CAL is said to be cooperating fully with the probe and it was the airline which had made the initial reports about their concerns to the authorities.

“The investigation is complex and involves cooperation with other foreign and local partner agencies,” the police stated Friday, but officers have neither confirmed nor denied that the enquiry relates to a family situation and custody issues.

    No one said anything about a stoning, besides it was only people smuggling. Probably get off with crucifixion. First offence isn’t it?

    Innocent until proven guilty everyone on this little island needs to remember that instead of passing judgment on these persons. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”
