Five foreign nationals, including three Nicaraguans, were arrested and charged with breaches of the Immigration Act following two separate police operations in St Elizabeth last week.

The accused individuals appeared in the St Elizabeth Parish Court on Friday, and were remanded in police custody.

The names of those arrested were not ascertained.

In court on Friday, prosecutors requested additional time to locate an interpreter for the accused individuals.

As a result, the matter was set for mention on November 2.

In the first incident on Wednesday, two men from a neighbouring Caribbean country were picked up at a house in Newton, St Elizabeth, and were subsequently charged with illegal entry.

The Nicaraguan men were arrested on the same day in Junction in the parish by the police. The Nicaraguan men were reported found with a quantity of ganja.

They were later charged with illegal entry and possession of ganja.
