There is no need for Venezuelans to fear the registration process, acting National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds assured at the post-Cabinet media briefing yesterday.
“This will only bring benefits,” he said as he gave a refresher on what to expect. Registration begins tomorrow until June 14, with the exception of June 5, which is a national holiday in observance of Eid-ul-Fitr. “It is most certainly not a trick a trap or anything sinister, it is the opposite,” acting Prime Minister Colm Imbert added. “We are making something that is wrong, right.”
Venezuela in recent years has suffered from economic and political turmoil, resulting in an influx of refugees and economic migrants to TT, as part of what the UN has called the biggest humanitarian crisis in the Western Hemisphere, and second only to Syria in the world.
