The Civil Society of Venezuelans in Trinidad and Tobago has condemned the arrest of several Venezuelans in Woodbrook last Friday. They claim several of those arrested had sought refugee status in this country.

On Friday, 30 people were arrested after police carried out an anti-crime exercise in Woodbrook.

In a statement, the Civil Society of Venezuelans in Trinidad and Tobago said among the Venezuelans who were assaulted and detained by the Immigration and police, many of them are here legally. The action taken on Friday is being described as police brutality and abuse of power.

The group is calling on the United Nation High Commission for Refugees to intervene.
