VILLA Capri Hotel and Bar in Marabella reopened for business last week Thursday after it was closed for several days following a major raid by security agents which led to the detaining of 71 women, all of whom are foreigners. A combined team of officers from the Police, Army and Immigration Department raided the popular establishment on July 21. The ‘‘sting’’ operation led to women from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Guyana and Suriname being detained.

The women who were all deemed illegal immigrants were arrested at the hotel and handed over to Immigration officials.

Management at the hotel resumed operations last Thursday morning after being handed back a copy of their original license with an approval to open by the Ministry of National Security. Yesterday, owner Cecil Sydney, 62, said operations were back to normal.

“On Thursday, we got back our special license to operate our hotel and bar complete with official stamp and the signature of the Commissioner of Police, Trevor Paul,” Sydney said. “Everything is back to normal and our loyal customers are back with us.”

Sydney added that he is still pursuing legal action against the State for what he said was extensive damage to his property during the police raid. Sydney insisted that the women who were detained, were not involved in any illegal activity and were in the country to further their education.

“We have passed $200,000 in losses and are still counting our losses,” Sydney said. Police yesterday said some of the women have since been released and are back at their hotel rooms at Villa Capri while others have been deported and the rest are still in jail awaiting news of their legal status.
