Scheperboer and Witteveen: Curaçao violates international laws with deportation of Venezuelans

Ieteke-WitteveenWILLEMSTAD - Curacao is guilty of violating international laws. This is what lawyer Berend Scheperboer and concerned citizen Ieteke Witteveen said about the imminent deportation of eight illegal Venezuelan women.

The women have recently started a hunger strike. Minister Quincy Girigorie of Justice says that the women are regarded as an economic refugee and that the deportation to Venezuela continues.

Curacao ends up in a negative light when they expel the eight Venezuelan women because they violate international laws, says Witteveen.

Witteveen cannot say exactly how things are going with the eight women. Minister Girigorie called on the women to end their hunger strike.

According to Attorney Berend Scheperboer, who often works for illegal immigrants in the community, will apply for dispensation for the women.
