The Trinidad and Tobago government is currently considering curtailing the current right of free, unrestricted and unhindered entry of nationals who try to return to the country after joining and fighting with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

National Security Minister, Edmund Dillon confirmed on Tuesday that discussions are currently taking place with the attorney general on changing the relevant law for the safety and security of the country.

Dillon had previously estimated that around 80-plus Trinidad and Tobago nationals, including families, had joined ISIS. However, according to US intelligence sources, the number could be closer to 130.

The United Nations had warned that Trinidad and Tobago is one of a number of countries with Muslim populations that is being used as a recruiting ground for the terror group.
