Trinis in Venezuela in ‘no immediate danger’
By MIRANDA LA ROSE Tuesday, February 25 2014
TRINIDAD and Tobago Embassy staff in Caracas are “in no immediate danger”, but the embassy is on heightened alert given widespread protests TT Ambassador to the neighbouring country Anthony Edghill said yesterday.
“Our situation is one of more inconvenience than immediate danger,” Edghill told Newsday yesterday noting also that the embassy has a contingency plan in place and is in regular contact with the home-based Ministry of Foreign Affairs. While the level of protests is new to the Trini-staff and there is some concern, Edghill said “no one is feeling threatened.” The protests, however, he said was not new to him having lived through the attempted coups of former President Hugo Chavez in 1989 and then again in 1992. Regular meetings are held with the staff as they remain in a state of heightened alert and to boost morale, he said. “We have a contingency plan that involves evacuation if the need arises,” he said adding that the evacuation may or may not involve logistical arrangements from TT and the use of national carrier Caribbean Airlines Limited.
