RBDF towing on a Haiti vessel.

Nassau | On Sunday, May 1, 2022, under the command of Lieutenant Owen Sands, 78 suspected immigrants were arrested by His Majesty’s Bahamian Ship (HMBS) Madeira.

During regular patrols, HMBS Madeira received Intel from the Coral Harbor Operations Command Center (OCC). The center used a state-of-the-art radar system (donated by the United States) to detect and track 12 nautical miles (NM) vessels. The location of New Providence was relayed to His Majesty’s ship, which intercepted the aircraft at three nautical miles south of South Beach.

Eleven females and 67 males arrived near Coral Harbor Base in about 0743 hours in a 40-foot red and blue Haitian sloop.

All migrants appear to be healthy and will be handed over to relevant authorities for further processing. RBDF MIGRANT APPREHENSION-They are back again!
