Three Cedros fishermen who were due to return to this country from Venezuela today (Sunday), will instead have to wait a bit longer.

The men, 52 year old Awardnath Hajaire, his son 26 year old Nicholas Hajaire and 36 year old Shami Seepersad were fishing aboard a pirogue off Cedros on April 5th, when they were arrested by officers of the La Guardia Nacional.

The men were expected to arrive at 11 am on Sunday, but as Councillor Shankar Teelucksingh explains, this did not happen as certain diplomatic procedures were not fulfilled.

It's been an agonising time for Heermatie Sankar, whose husband and son are among the 3 men stranded in Venezuela. She said her husband is the sole breadwinner of the family home, and each day that passes without him, is becoming tougher for her to survive.

C News attempted to get into contact with National Security Minister Edmund Dillon for a comment on the matter, however up to news time he could not be reached.
