One Cuban still on the run

| 09/08/2008

(CNS): All but one of the 23 Cuban migrants that made a bid for freedom from the Immigration Detention Centre (IDC) on Thursday night, 7 August, are back in custody. 27-year-old Raylan Rodriquez Ramos (left) remains on the run, according to Immigration Department officials. During the early hours of Friday morning 17 migrants were apprehended and detained while another turned himself in at the IDC. Four more men were found Friday night.

Immigration officials said they urge people to be on the look out for the remaining migrant and they sought to remind the public that assisting an escaped migrant is an offence attracting penalties of up to $50,000 and imprisonment of up to seven years. The numbers to call are Immigration at 926-0433 or 244-2028, or the police by calling 911.

    A man with such a short vision as this one can not lead this country into the 21st century.

    He will lead us over the cliff.
