Statement From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

142

There is a video circulating of a fringe activist group interfering with the free movement of a member of the public. The grouping has no lawful authority to interfere with members of the public.

For public information, no citizen of this country or non national should stop or surrender or allow themselves to be questioned or detained by any person, unless the person so doing has identified him or herself as a duly authorized law enforcement officer.

The Bahamas remains a country governed by the rule of law and the rights of all must be respected.

If you have been subjected to the unlawful actions of this group, you may make a report at the nearest police station, your local embassy or to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

We are circulating this advisory to all foreign embassies in The Bahamas.
