Nationals currently stranded in the United Kingdom have written to National Security Minister, Stuart Young, requesting exemptions to be repatriated later this month.
A statement addressed to Young was posted on the Facebook group Everyttcitizenmatters on Friday. It asked for consideration on behalf of those stuck in the U.K. who have been offered flights to the Barbados on the 18 and 21 of July.
“We are sincerely appealing to the Minister for permission, to allow Caribbean Airlines to assist us on the same day transition to Trinidad or to simply allow British Airways to land in Trinidad, to have citizens return home. This proposal has already been sent to him and we anxiously await his response.”
