Senior cop's visa cancelled

A superintendent of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) confirmed last night that his United States (US) visa had been cancelled.

The superintendent, who wished not to be named, told
The Gleaner
that he was written to in February about the new status of his visa.

"I have spoken to my lawyer and have given in my documents. This is the first time this is happening to me," the officer said.

He refused to answer any other questions about the cancellation, saying his lawyers were currently in discussion with the US Embassy.

Karl Angell, the JCF communications director, was unwilling to discuss the force hierarchy's views on the issue.

"We are making no comments on this issue right now," Angell said.

News of the police officer's visa woes comes after last month's revelation that businessman Wayne Chen had his US visa cancelled.
