Mail arrives 8 months late

| 09/04/2009

(CNS): The Cayman Islands Postal Services said today that three bags of mail, which had been delayed since last year have now arrived in the Cayman Islands. Some of the mail was reportedly dispatched as far back as August of last year from New York but did not make its way here until last Friday way 3 April. The postal service said the reason for the delay is still not known.

The delay involved three separate dispatches of mail dispatched through the US Postal Service in New York to Cayman on 4 August; 30 November; and 6 December. “The reason for the delay has yet to be determined,” Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow said. “But there seems to have been some mix-up between the airlines involved in transferring the mail, and it was left in a warehouse in Jamaica.” Glasgow emphasised however, that the Jamaica Postal Corporation is not responsible for the delay. “We regret any inconvenience this delay has caused and we are dealing with the matter with the appropriate agencies.”

The Postmaster General confirmed that all of the mail should now be awaiting collection in the relevant Cayman post boxes.
