Guyana: Fishermen detained in Guyana’s waters appear in Venezuelan court

The 12 Guyanese seamen currently detained in Venezuela are likely to spend at least another month in that country as authorities have been granted 45 days in which to conclude an investigation and possibly lay charges.

Kumar Lallbachan owner of “Lady Nayera”, one of the vessel which have been detained, told Stabroek News last evening that the men had been taken before a Venezuelan Court where the order was made.

“They weren’t charged with anything yet. Is just the 45 days to investigate the Court give,” Lallbachan said adding that for that period the men are expected to stay on the boats moored at Port Guiria.
