The abuse of power, the violation of Human Rights and femicide show one of the most cruel aspects of detention centers in Venezuela. “There also prevails the law of oppression, injustice and corruption imposed by the security forces aligned with the dictatorship, and today the only weapon that the democrats have against this arbitrariness is denunciation,” said this Tuesday the Venezuelan ambassador to Costa Rica, María Faria.
The statement of the diplomat arises from the discussion generated in a session of the Delegate Commission of the Legitimate National Assembly, on the case of the young Daniela Yeraldin Figueredo Salazar, murdered this weekend by a police officer while she was detained. This case was denounced by the NGO ‘Una Ventana a la Libertad’, which also collected the testimony of several women who confessed to being victims of sexual abuse within the police compound.
“Every day we learn of tragedies that only corroborate the veracity of the report of the United Nations Office for Human Rights on Venezuela, in which the regime is urged to immediately adopt measures to stop and remedy serious rights violations, understanding that it is the narco-regime that promotes the lethal actions carried out by security officials,” said Faria while encouraging international organizations to support the complaints.
The multiplication of femicides, the violation of elementary human rights, the lack of due process is for the Ambassador “consequence of the impunity that during the last two decades has marked the destruction of the justice system in Venezuela. That impunity that corrupted the institutions and subjects the population under a leadership of a few characters who cling to power.”
She insisted that the international community continues to play a crucial role in preventing the institutional crisis that prevents the restoration of the rule of law and democracy in Venezuela from deepening.
