A St. Lucian man along with two other Caribbean nationals were detained by Dutch authorities in St. Maarten after being suspected of being involved in human smuggling.
The men were captured after Dutch coast guard vessels spotted them in a boat in Dutch waters.
The men were accompanied by at least 11 Cubans whom they are suspected of attempting to smuggle to the US Virgin Islands.
The other men were of Montserratian and Antiguan origin.
The men have not been charged as yet as Dutch police is still investigating.
