A group of 27 Venezuelan Nationals, among them 16 children, re-entered Trinidad this afternoon at Los Iros beach.

This same group was escorted out of Trinidad and Tobago waters by the Coast Guard on Sunday after being caught entering illegally last week.

At the beach on Tuesday, a relative living in Trinidad told reporter Cindy Raghubar-Teekersingh that the pirogue taking the group back to Venezuela encountered difficulties at sea, forcing their return.


Just one day after the $500 million APT James fast ferry was commissioned by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley at the Scarborough Port, comes word that a number of truckers remain stranded in Trinidad with goods for Tobago.
