Venezuelans sent to Dodds
They fled the crisis in Venezuela and were trying to send back money for their families, said two men from that South American country who were held on a boat with US$30 310.
However, Barbados Immigration officials had no record of Niconaty Jose Guerra Guerra and Pedro Antonio Cabrera Sifonte ever entering the country.
As a result, the two were remanded to HMP Dodds when they appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
The remand order reduced Sifonte to tears, while Guerra begged for leniency, saying they had made a mistake. (HLE)
