    Petrotrin officially closed up shop today, however some employees say they have not yet received severance monies or even their final salaries.

    Several gathered at Paria Suites, where they held a media conference, to highlight their concerns.

    Gabriel Osuna, an estate constable, says in addition to non-payments, the promised packages are not as attractive as people believe.
