Trinidad: “Court hears Venezuelan’s deportation challenge”

Lawyers are challenging the deportation of one of the 82 Venezuelans who were deported by the immigration authorities on April 21.

Aaron Knights, legal assistant to attorneys Otis Diaz and Mervyn Cordner, told the Express yesterday the lawyers have argued that Wilfer Sandoval was illegally deported.
He said an application was made to the court on Sandoval’s illegal deportation as well as his detention at the Immigration Detention Centre (IDC) in Arima.

Attorneys representing Sandoval and the State appeared before Justice Margaret Mohammed at the San Fernando High Court yesterday.
