Bahamas Ambassador Negotiates Release of COVID-19 Medical Supplies Returned To U.S.


Sidney Collie, Bahamas ambassador to the U.S. and permanent representative to the Organization of American States (OAS), had informed the Bahamas Ministry of Foreign Affairs that following consultations with U.S. competent authorities in D.C., a shipment of COVID-19 medical supplies to the Bahamas that were “returned to the Port of Miami last week, on order by U.S. authorities” had been released and was due to arrive back in Nassau on April 14, the ministry confirmed.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs takes this opportunity to thank US Embassy Officials in Nassau and in Washington D.C., for responding quickly to our démarche to have these medical supplies released so that they can be added to our critical stock as The Bahamas continues to protect its citizens and residents from the spread of this terrible scourge of COVID-19,” Foreign Affairs Minister Darren Henfield said in a statement.

Responding to inquiries from a reporter with The Tribune, one of The Bahamas’ leading newspapers, Henfield described the diplomatic snafu as “simply a bureaucratic misunderstanding.”
