Crisis plan for refugee flow

Quincy-GirigorieWILLEMSTAD - There is a crisis plan for when a large flow of Venezuelans comes to the island. That plan was drawn up by the taskforce of undocumented migrants, says the Minister of Justice Quincey Girigorie

The plan states that Curaçao offers protection to people at risk if they return to their country of origin. But because the size of Curaçao is very small, refugees who reach the island cannot apply for asylum. For that reason, Curaçao has not signed the UN Refugee Convention.
