UN High Commissioner Disputes T&T Government’s Asylum Seekers’ Policy.

UN High Commissioner Disputes T&T Government’s Asylum Seekers’ Policy.

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees representative, Ruben Barbado says no one should be sent back to their country when they are in the process of applying for asylum, regardless of what policy a Government may have in place.

The UN’s local representative and the Government disagreed on how the issue was handled leading to Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley complaining to the UN over the statements made by the local representative.

Speaking with Andy Johnson on Power 102.1FM this morning, Mr. Barbado said the UN’s mandate is to ask Governments to respect international laws and raise concerns when it believes it is necessary.

    The PM knows the sands are shifting under him. He also cut a deal with Maduro to solve his natural gas shortage problems. There must be something Maduro wants in return. He is good at getting rid of people opposed to him. Can we now connect the dots?
