Jewish group returned to Canada

Nine members of the Lev Tahor Hasidic Jewish group who were denied entry into Trinidad and Tobago on Carnival Monday were yesterday forcibly removed from their hotel room at the Piarco International hotel and returned to Canada.

Reports are that shortly after 5 pm yesterday, heavily armed police officers took the three adults and six children, kicking and screaming, into marked police vehicles to the airport. At about 6 pm, an aircraft from the Turks and Caicos Islands arrived at the airport, and the nine members were escorted to the aircraft. At 6:30 pm, they were on their way to Canada on board the aircraft.

On their arrival in Canada, sources said the children will be taken into the custody of Social Services.

The group has stayed at the airport from the time they arrived here till Wednesday, finally being persuaded to book into the Piarco International Airport on Thursday. Group leader Avraham Dinkel has said that the group was en route to Guatemala.
