The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Julio Borges, on Thursday condemned the inhumane treatment in Trinidad and Tobago by Venezuelans fleeing Maduro’s dictatorship.
“This government opened the doors, in the midst of the pandemic, to emissaries of the regime accused of organized crime and closes its borders to Venezuelans,” Borges said through a message on his official Twitter account.
Likewise, the Venezuelan diplomat assured that the actions of this government do not correspond to the international conventions on the protection of refugees, at the same time that he asked the UNHCR and other international organizations to raise their voices against these abuses.
“The only way to stop this drama is with Maduro’s departure,” he concluded.
Las acciones de este gobierno no corresponden con los convenios internacionales sobre la protección de refugiados, pedimos a ACNUR y demás organizaciones que alcen su voz contra estos atropellos. La única manera de frenar este drama es con la salida de Maduro.
