Curaçao can offer protection to refugees

Refugees1WILLEMSTAD - Curaçao has not signed the Geneva Convention on refugees, but must offer protection to Venezuelans who are at risk of deportation by the Immigration Service.

This is also recognized by the Ministry of Justice with reference to the European Convention on Human Rights. For the Venezuelan Sergeant who has applied for asylum, it is now being examined whether he can obtain protection through the refugee organization of the United Nations in Curaçao.
