In a new day of the Plan Vuelta a la Patria, this Friday a total of 95 Venezuelans from Trinidad and Tobago arrived in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
The flight activated by the state airline Conviasa responds to the request of Venezuelans who were in a situation of vulnerability and pressure in the Caribbean country.
Last November, the United Nations (UN) urged the Trinidadian authorities to protect the rights of migrant children, following the deportation of 16 Venezuelan children and 9 adults.
Through a statement, the international body recalled that all migrants, regardless of their situation, have the right to respect and protection of their human rights.
“regarding to refugee and migrant children, States have a special duty of care: the best interests of the child must be a primary consideration in all decisions that affect them”, the document said.
Reports from international organizations that defend human rights indicated that the situation facing the Caribbean island due to the COVID-19 pandemic does not justify deportations that violate international law.
To date there are already 133 nationals who have been repatriated from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago with the Plan Vuelta a la Patria, to total more than 23 thousand Venezuelans repatriated.
