(CMR) A petition for the immediate deportation of a bigamist and alleged fraudster “Kenia Alonzo” has been started by Facebook posters who are outraged after a weekend of tragedy.
Many persons were outraged that despite her having entered the Cayman Islands under fraudulent documentation and a fake alias she has been released from prison and not yet deported. We understand the batter is going to court tomorrow for mention but no trial date has been set.
The full details can be read here.
Cindi Welcome was so outraged by the story that she started the petition after several others suggested it be done:
“it would upset anyone seeing that video with that mother's child begging this woman – this isn't love it's abuse – she should have been deported from January. It's obvious to anyone that she was paving a way for her to bring her children here. Someone needs to be held accountable and liable for not doing their jobs which allowed her to remain here for this long.
As a result of Alonzo's fraudulent activity, she was able to marry two separate men in the Cayman Islands. CMR spoke with the first husband earlier who reported that he reported the bigamy late last year when it came to his attention. However, no action appears to have been taken by the authorities.
Another exclusive and well-placed source indicates that the RCIPS were given the complaint about the bigamy allegation from “several months before she assaulted her latest husband” in early January. That would coincide with the ex-husband's accounts of when he reported her. Apparently the police have been slow to act and allegations have been levied against two of the male officers that they had “inappropriate relations” with her which was hampering their ability to carry out a swift and impartial investigation.
A legal source indicated that this offense isn't statute-barred – in other words there's no time limit for the police and prosecution office to act within and as a result there appears to be no desire to have dealt with the matter swiftly.
Bigamy is a Category A offense that can only be dealt with by the police. If immigration received any information regarding this offense they would have had to pass it along to the RCIPS for action.
Another outraged poster shared their feelings with CMR:
“There is also a serious matter of Caymanians remaining married to foreign nationals when they are no longer with them. That creates an avenue for the system to be taken advantage of by these persons. They are able to hold jobs, applied for government assistance etc. on the basis of a bona marriage when it fact that doesn't exist. Immigration needs to start charging both parties in situations like this. Had her first spouse informed immigration they were no longer married she would not have likely been in a position to take advantage of this vulnerable young man.”
