No. The refusal of entry must be shown to constitute a breach of the right of entry, such as improper grounds for refusal, or a breach of the procedural requirements as set out by the Court. The Court awarded pecuniary and non-pecuniary damages in this particular case, based on the particular facts which were proven to the satisfaction of the Court. The pecuniary damages (BDS$2240) represented certain travel and medical expenses which were proven by the Claimant. The non-pecuniary damages (BDS$75,000) were awarded because of the serious breaches of the right of entry (from arrival to unlawful departure), which the Claimant was able to prove. However, the Court noted the following -
This award is not necessarily a precedent for all breaches of this right. The very serious circumstances of this breach merit compensation, however, the Court may consider in other cases of breach of right of entry that a Declaration of breach is appropriate relief.
