Consulate defends Venezuelans from accusations kidnapping
WILLEMSTAD – The Venezuelan Consulate-General in Curaçao emitted a press release in defense of the Venezuelans on the island. The consulate states in their press release that they regret that Venezuelans are being accused of attempting to abduct children.
According to police spokesman Imro Zwerwer there was only one complaint filed so far.
This week there were several stories going around about attempted child abduction. According to witnesses the perpetrators were Venezuelans. Zwerver indicated that he also heard the stories, but did not have any concrete information about them. It is unclear whether there are already suspects and whether these are indeed of Venezuelan descent.
The Consulate-General states that Venezuelans stand for brotherhood, cooperation and companionship, saying: “Venezuelans are happy people and are always ready to help others. It's sad that people are not talking badly about everything that has to do with Venezuelans.”
