Finger printing will be limited to permit holders

| 14/03/2012

4204-biometrics-1-200.jpg(CNS): The country’s premier has stated that he will not support a system that finger prints everyone who comes into the Cayman Islands as he says it could damage the tourism sector. The deputy governor revealed that government has acquired the necessary equipment, and the legislation to implement a system to fingerprint all future and existing work permit holders will be going before Cabinet shortly. Answering questions from Ezzard Miller in Finance Committee on Tuesday, Franz Manderson said that the goal had only ever been to fingerprint permit holders and not Caymanians or visitors.

Miller said that the printing system should apply to everyone coming in and not just work permit holders. He said he believed there was a greater threat to security from people entering Cayman without any information or the clearance required from permit holders so he said it would be sensible to implement the system across the board. He pointed to cases he had heard about where people were deported over and over again but the authorities were unaware because they were using false passports.

However, the premier, who was chairing the Finance Committee hearing, pointed out that such a move to encompass everybody who came in and out of Cayman was a much broader policy decision that was not confined to the deputy governor’s remit of security, as he said it would impact tourism.

“This is a much greater policy issue. I’m not going to agree to that as we are a tourist destination,” McKeeva Bush told Miller and said it was not something the committee could get into discussing there and then. The premier told the independent member that he acknowledged his position but the discussion would have to take place another time.

“I hear your position,” Bush added but made it clear it did not have his support. He said it would cost too much and it was not right to have people waiting in lines when they are tourists visiting the destination.

Miller said he did not believe that tourists would be impacted so badly by a biometric entry security system, which is common in other jurisdictions. The independent member said it would help to prevent people from abusing the system and queried what the position of the police commissioner would be, given that criminals were obviously getting into the country via the general entry as tourists.

Bush stated, however, that there were no conclusions about the system yet as discussions about the legal changes had only taken place a few weeks earlier and there was still work to be done before the issue would come before the Legislative Assembly.

The deputy governor confirmed the system would be installed at the airport and at the immigration office and there would be a significant programme to print existing residents as their work permits came up for renewal.

    It seems to me that if we finally have proper fingerprinting equipment in place, it would only make good sense for everyone to be fingerprinted. Think of the countless crimes that could have been solved if there were fingerprints to match those collected on the crime scene to. As far as it damaging the tourism sector, how so? I get fingerprinted every time I enter the U.S.A. and it doesn't stop me from returning. I have nothing to hide, so they can fingerprint me as many times as they'd like. It would seem to me that those who protest being fingerprinted might be worried they get caught doing somethign illegal later on.

    There is an interesting irony in this: Mr. Miller, who has often been maligned as anti-expat, says “I’m not too worried about the work permit holders in that most of them would have to have a clean police record in order to get a work permit so we already know that they are of a certain calibre … I have greater concern about the people who just coming here through our immigration for a short period of time. It was my understanding all along that the biometric identification that was going to be provided by immigration was going to be all inclusive, including Caymanians,” while the Premier, who is believed to be pro-expat, says it must be imposed on permit holders but not on Caymanians.

    I actually think this is a good idea, I am an expat (been here a long time) and I wonder how some work permit holders get here in the first place and how they come back to the Islands after doing some terrible things here. Gone one year, return the next…. I say install these fingerprint readers as soon as possible.

      0909  Expat to another expat I agree with you, because many of us expats have clean record, we work hard here, we come from decent homes and families, and we look around and see next door criminals working here and wonder how they got in.

      Yes fingerprint them, their are too many criminals on work permit here.  I blame immigration Department, because they have been ignoring request from the public to stop taking these  false police records from people.  They are bought.  Are you people deaf or what?

      When the Immigration receive, for example 20 applications for a day all they have to do is enter all the names and address in their system , which is being done anyway.   The cost of the overseas police record application is collected by the Immigration Department from the applicat or application company.      Compile a list and send a fax off to that country, or email to that country the list of 20 applicants to the Records Department.  sit back patiently and wait for a week.   Boom!! a reply has arrived with the good bad and ugly reports.  Then they take it from there.  Immigration just do not want to do this I do not know why.  So they are to blame for criminals here on work permit.  Come on Immigration you have to do better, and they are not only from the caribbean, they are from all over.

      If you were an expat you would know to get a work permit you need medical and police clearance. As for expats commiting crimes then being allowed to return, please supply your examples

      It really sounds like you are making it up or are you just a troll?

    DISCRIMINATION, DISCRIMINATION AND DISCRIMINATION !   Let them try it with me, I will get the best lawyer on their asses and take it to the highest supreme court.   If you are going to implement a policy such as this, it should be across the board, not just applied to the people most unlikely to commit crimes here.  Apply it equally to all residents, not just permit-holders, and to all tourists too.  What?  Don't you think some of them come here under the guise of visiting, to carry out other things?  But if you really want to stop crime atits root, look at yourself in the mirror, because it is your own that is doing the majority of it and ending up at Northward.

          Some permit holders come from countries where Police Clearance Certificates can be bought for a bribe. Others come from the UK where a simple affidavit of no convictions by the permitholder will suffice: "honest, I am not a criminal". Some permitholders engage in white collar crimes. There are permit holders who have come and committed heinous crimes. Some are deported and return under assumed identities. Many of those in the prisons who are identified as Caymanian are in fact of other nationalities but who have obtained Caymanian status. Obviously you cannot speak for all permit holders. None of that is to say that all or even most permit holders are criminals.

    The debate about who gets fingerprinted is a valid one but I will set that aside and look at the logistics of the present proposal.

    If we are going to do it just for WP holders can we please avoid doing it at the airport. We already have severe congestion at immigration and it is not the best experiecne for anybody – tourist, WP holder, PR or Caymanian. Slowing down the processing of WP holders at the airport delays everyone.

    All you need to do is make it a requirement of WP that within 10 days of first entry on WP the holder attend immigration office downtown to have their fingerprints taken. If they do not then Employer gets final warning and 10 days later the Permit is revoked and the employer has some serious questions to be answered before they get anoother employee WP granted. When the fingerprints are taken the work permit gets stamped to show fingerprints held (in code -we don't need to go advertising this stuff). Anyone coming in with WP not showing that  – ie a new permit holding entrant or an exsisting one coming back into the country for the first time after this lw comes into effect – gets told to go to downtown  immigrationwithin 10 days and the consequences of not doing so. A note is then sent to downtown immigration to that effect that that notification has been given and the permit is diarised accordingly.

      The Bill of Rights must be read alongside the ECHR which will alway trump the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.  One does not need to get to the discrimination section, albeit it that that section will not affect this issue much.  Rather the rights of privacy are triggered here.  The taking of fingerprints or DNA for use in a generally accessible database for police when the taking of that evidence was not linked to a specific crime is illegal.  So, at its highest, immigration will be able to retain fingerprint information while someone is on a permit, but they cannot give that information to anyone else, including the police, and they would have to destroy the information once the permit holder leaves.
