Attention HR Recruitment Officer

In sentencing three illegal Venezuelan immi-
grants to six months in prison, a senior mag-
istrate said a message has to be sent because
there are too many people illegally entering
Carlos Boatswain, 28, an ex Navy of icer, Luis
Figueroa, 22, a businessman, and his friend
Christian Castillo, 25, a student, pleaded guilty
before San Fernando magistrate Cherril-Anne
Antoine to illegally entering the country.
They claimed they came here seeking refuge
given the current situation in their country.
They arrived on a boat last year on an un-
known beach, which was not a designated as a
port of entry and failed to report to an Immi-
gration of icer for examination.
The trio, who had valid Venezuelan pass-
ports, claimed they arrived here around No-
Court prosecutor Ceylon Seedan said around
9.50 am on January 3, Immigration Of icer Cpl
Williams met the defendants at the Immigration
Of ice in San Fernando. With the assistance of a
Spanish interpreter he told them of the offence
they had committed.
Boatswain did not say anything, but both
Castillo and Figueroa replied, "I did not know
that it was an illegal port of entry." Williams
inquires revealed there was no record of them
entering the country nor were their passports
Through Luz Maria Tapais-de-Copilah, Boat-
swain said he came here to run away from Ven-
He said he was an of icer in the Navy provid-
ing security at government of ices, but retired,
because he did like what his colleagues were
Boatswain after his departure members of
the Army began following him.
Boatswain said he did not know the port of
entry was illegal, but he did report to an Immi-
gration of icer because he was scared he would
be sent back to his homeland.
Figueroa, who owned a Play Whe Booth, said
he and his friend Castillo participated in riots
against the government. He said his business
place was burnt down and he had inancial
problems. Figueroa, the father of a three year
old child, said the minimum monthly salary in
his country is equivalent to US$5.
Apologising for his actions, Castillo said his
intention was to seek refuge because he partic-
ipated in marches against the government and
was being followed by the police.
Castillo, a psycholo y student and profes-
sional chef, said he wants democracy and free-
dom of expression returned to his country.
Castillo, who was forced to drop out of
school, said someone stripped the tires in the
car he and his mother were in, causing them to
be involved in an accident.
Seedan said visitors' arrival to this country
need to be recorded, especially with the bad
crime situation in the country. Noting that
there were too may people illegally entering the
country, Antoine said, "I think the court needs
to send a message, too many of them coming
here. I assume when they do come across here
illegally they are paying a passage, then they
can purchase a ticket.
