The five Trinidad and Tobago nationals that have been detained in Venezuela are on the 14th day of their hunger strike. This according to spokesperson Umar Abdullah.

Mr. Abdullah said the detained men appeared before a judge four times before and are currently awaiting the ruling of the judge in the matter.

He says the men were initially charged with conspiracy to assassinate the Venezuelan President and to destabilize the government. The charges were however dropped and two new charges were filed: espionage and intent to commit a crime.

Imam Yasin Abu Bakr said when he first heard of the Muslims being detained in Venezuela he contacted a Venezuelan General who later told him that they would be released. Two days later only the women and children returned home.
