Imams home tomorrow
By DARCEL CHOY Friday, May 16 2014
THE three Imams who were released from a Caracas prison on Tuesday night are expected to return home to Trinidad tomorrow. Salam Abdul, Hamza Mohammad and Sheikh Hamid Hassan will arrive at about 11.20 am on a Caribbean Airlines flight.
The men were arrested in March along with 19 others, including Muslim women and children, and charged with terrorism and criminal conspiracy. The women and children were held for approximately two weeks before they were released and returned to Trinidad. The group was detained while attempting to process visa applications for a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. Islamic Missionaries Guilds of the Caribbean and South America, president Imtiaz Mohammed yesterday confirmed the Imams’ return. He said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was still working with the authorities in Venezuela in an effort to get 42 passports returned. The group of men would have taken the passports of others to get visas.
