Jamaica deports Yasin Abu Bakr

Friday, October 17, 2014

Yasin Abu Bakr, leader of the Trinidadian muslim group departed Jamaica to Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday morning (Oct. 16, 2014).

Abu Bakr was refused entry to the island on Wednesday at the Norman Manley International Airport due to to national security concerns.

His son, Fuad Abu Bakr, has questioned the decision of Jamaican immigration officials to deny entry to his father.

The younger Bakr was among those accompanying his father to Jamaica where they were expected top participate in the anniversary of the "Million Man March".

"How could Imam Yasin Abu Bakr, 73, on Saturday coming with one of his wives and son on a trip for six days to visit his daughter at Mona Campus and as a guest at the commemoration of the million man march with Minister Luis Farrakan be a threat to national security in Jamaica", tasked the son.

In 1990, 114 members of the Jamaat al Muslimeen attempted to stage a coup against the government of Trinidad and Tobago.

Forty-two insurgents stormed the Red House, the seat of Parliament, and took Prime Minister ANR Robinson and most of his cabinet hostage, while seventy-two of their accomplices attacked the offices of Trinidad and Tobago Television (TTT), and the Trinidad Broadcasting Company, then one of only two radio stations in the country.

Abu Bakr appeared on television and announced that the government had been overthrown and that he was negotiating with the army.

He called for calm and said that there should be no looting.

Robinson was beaten and shot when he tried to order the army to attack the militants.

The army and the police responded by sealing off the area around the Red House and, after six days of negotiations, the Muslims surrendered and were taken into custody.

They were freed after a court upheld an amnesty offered to allow for their surrender.

Abu Bakr has been suspected of involvement in criminal activities, including the drug trade.
