(Trinidad Guardian) The group of eight T&T nationals detained in Turkey since July 2016 includes two families and two babies four and ten months old.
The T&T Guardian confirmed the information on Monday from foreign officials close to the matter.
The group was detained in Turkey in July 2016, together with a Syrian man who is suspected of trying to take them to join terrorist group ISIS in Iraq.
They have been lodged at the Adana Refugee Centre in Turkey since then. But Government has repeatedly said there is little information forthcoming on them, why they’re being held or when they would be released.
But information received from overseas sources by the T&T Guardian revealed that the group comprises three males and five females, all T&T Muslims.
Four are members of one family, which includes two males, one four-month-old boy and a 19-year-old male.
The females in that family are aged 29 and 17.
