In a statement on Wednesday, the Foreign Ministry said, formal notification has been received from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration in the Bahamas, advising of the investigation into the alleged sexual assault.
The note affirmed that the Bahamas will not tolerate incidents of this nature and the Immigration Officer has been placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.
Jamaica replied, stating that it is looking forward to the strongest possible measures to investigate the alleged violation.
In addition, there has been telephone contact between the Foreign Ministers of both countries.
Jamaica's Honourary Consul in the Bahamas, Patrick Hanlan, has also been in close contact with the Bahamian authorities and the alleged rape victim.
