A lack of passports and flights into their country are keeping two illegal Venezuelans in Barbados.

This was revealed by Immigration Officer Terry Simmons as Niconaty Jose Guerra Guerra and Pedro Antonio Cabrera Sifonte reappeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Guerra, 33, of Caracas, and Sifonte, 36, of Delta Amacuro, both tradesmen, pleaded guilty last month to entering the island by sea, other than at a port of entry, sometime between October 1 last year and February 16, and arriving by sea and disembarking without the consent of an Immigration Officer during the same period.
