Magistrate Carla James made an order for Andrew to be removed from St Vincent and the Grenadines immediately after he pleaded guilty to entering the state by boat and disembarking at Union Island without the permission of immigration, on November 29, 2014.

According to the facts, on December 24, at about 8 a.m., a party of Rapid Response Unit (RRU) officers encountered Andrew when they went to a house in Keartons to carry out a search warrant.

When questioned, he told the officers that he came here and did not clear immigration.

In court, Andrew told the magistrate that it was his first time in St Vincent and that he only came to see his son for the Christmas holiday.

He also said he would have gone through the proper procedures, but noted that his finances weren’t in order.(KW)
