Four Venezuelans were detained by officers of the Road Policing Task Force on November 12th, 2020.
Jhoana Esther Jiminez Villa, 30, Indira Gregoria Hernandez Bastardo 25, Yelisbert Jose Fermin Gomez, 20, and Yanetzi Del Valle Serrano Ramos 18, were stopped and interviewed by the officers during a road traffic exercise.
The exercise was conducted along the Caroni South Bank Road between 12 midday and 3pm.
The women who were en-route to Curepe from Chaguanas, could not provide any documentation proving their legal status or stay in the country.
Further questions by the officers, led to the discovery that four women only entered the country two weeks ago.
The women and the local driver of the vehicle, were all taken to the Caroni Police Station where the Counter Trafficking Unit and the Immigration Division will conduct further investigations.
