Jamiaca Energy and Mining Minister James Robertson
We’ve heard of a lot of dancehall artistes like Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Mavado, and even recently Mr. Lexx losing their visas but Energy and Mining Minister James Robertson is the latest Jamaican to have his and his wife’s US visa cancelled.
It is at the discretion of the US government to not only issue visas but to also revoke them at any time.
Here’s what The Gleaner is reporting:
“We readily acknowledge that as a sovereign nation it is the prerogative of the US government to issue and revoke visas,” said James Robertson.
“However, no details have been provided as to the basis for the cancellations, although we are of the view that this could have resulted from the uncorroborated statements forwarded to various departments of the US government in support of a failed application for political asylum. The allegations made in those statements have been, and remain, wholly rejected.”
Robertson said that he and his wife have dispatched their US- based attorney to Washington, DC, to “seek audience” with the relevant officials in an effort to ascertain the basis for the cancellations.”
