Opposition Leader thanks Barbados for accepting T&T nationals


    Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has written to Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley to thank her Government for accepting the arrival of 35 T&T citizens.

    The persons were unable to make it home in time before the closure of our borders on Sunday, and have since been put in mandatory quarantine in Barbados.

    In the letter, Mrs Persad-Bissessar praised that country’s commitment to humanity in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.

    She adds that the current global situation highlights how vulnerable the region can be if not united, and if the various countries do not work in the best interest of each other.
