14 escape from Immigration Detention Centre

Police and Immigration officers are searching for 14 persons who escaped from the Immigration Detention Centre (IDC) in Aripo.

Details indicate that the escape occurred between 3 pm and 5 pm Wednesday afternoon during airing time.

IDC officers are searching the perimeter in a bushy area for the detainees.

Most are believed to be Venezuelan nationals.

This follows the escape of five men in April this year.

Prior to that, two detainees also escaped in March.
