The president of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) William Mahfood, has joined the calls for a boycott of goods from Trinidad and Tobago.

Mahfood has told the media in Jamaica that it's time for Jamaica to stand up for its rights and refuse Trinidad access to the Jamaican market if it continues to restrict free movement of Jamaican citizens.

He later clarified that he did not call for an outright boycott of Trinidadian goods, but a temporary restriction on some goods.

Jamaica is investigating allegations that two nationals were ill-treated on their arrival at Trinidad's Piarco airport on March 21st.

Jamaica's Foreign Affairs Minister Kamina Johnson Smith has called for Trinidad and Tobago's government and national carrier Caribbean Airlines to improve facilities for holding people who are denied entry into the country.
