Cayman Islands: Independent review of the RCIPS Search and Rescue Operation [won’t ‘soon come’]

Canada_Search_and_RescueFrom The Cayman Islands Governor’s Office

Immediately after agreeing the need for an independent investigation into the RCIPS response to the missing persons at sea the Governor made a formal approach to the United States Coast Guard, and on their advice, subsequently to the US National Transport Safety Board. The latter approach was made via standard diplomatic channels and both requested a review of the recent RCIPS Search and Rescue Operation.

A month has passed since the request was made and it is with disappointment that we have been informed today that the NTSB is unable to assist with our request. Therefore, the Governor has, today, requested assistance from an alternative suitably qualified agency.

The Governor remains committed to a review taking place and the findings from this being made public. The Governor is keen that the review takes place as early as possible.
