by | Apr 4, 2014

NEWS GRAPHIC 3The eight Trinidadian men detained in a Venezuelan prison on suspicion of terrorism did not appear in court as was expected.

The men were among a group of 19 citizens who were arrested at the Plaza Hotel in Sabana Grande, Caracas. Venezuelan officials claim they found jihadist videos and military equipment on some of the men.

An imam who is among the group of eight that remains under arrest had a total of $102 thousand dollars and 66 passports in his possession.

The men claim prison conditions are unhygienic.

The men are appealing for the intervention of the Government.

Meanwhile, founder of the Islamic Broadcasting Network, Inshan Ismael, says all reports that a court date was set for the men are false.

Mr. Ismael and members of the Islamic community protested outside the Venezuelan Embassy calling for the men to be released.

He says it is strange that the women and children were released without being questioned about their men’s activities.
