The Attorney General's Department is now reviewing the deportation case of dancehall entertainer Tommy Lee to determine the next course of action.



Tommy Lee, whose given name is Leroy Russell, and three other men – Oralie Russell, Junior Fraser and Mario Wallace – allege that they were denied entry when they arrived for a performance in Dominica on February 23.



They claim that they were held in inhumane conditions and later forced to leave without due process.



They have asked the Attorney general’s department to take action against Dominica on their behalf.



In a letter to the artiste’s attorney Bert Samuels, the department says it has received the case file from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade.



The Attorney General’s Chambers says it will attempt to engage the Dominican authorities with a view of seeking clarification on the events of February 23 and 24.



It says once the review is complete the Government will decide on the next step.
