Foreign Affairs Minister E.P Chet Greene has dismissed reports that a section of the Immigration Department for which he has portfolio responsibilities lacks protective gear.
Minister Greene was responding to a report earlier this week in a section of the media that claimed the Immigration Officers within the Enforcement Unit were without Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
In an interview, Minister Greene charged that those spreading such rumors have ulterior motives.
He confirmed the Immigration Department has recorded a COVID-19 case, but was quick to add the necessary measures were taken to protect all other officers.
Immigration Officers along with Defense Force Personnel were among frontline workers receiving the Astrazneca vaccine on Thursday.
