One hundred and twelve Haitians were repatriated to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, yesterday, the Department of Immigration reported.
The group consisted of 99 men, 12 women and one child.
They were escorted by a team of joint law enforcement officers on board a Bahamasair chartered flight.
With the assistance of police and immigration officers, the repatriation convoy left the Carmichael Road Detention Centre at 6:30 a.m. en route to Lynden Pindling International Airport.
This was the first scheduled repatriation flight to Haiti since the country’s recent unrest.
The government suspended repatriations last week because of riots in the Haitian capital.
