National Assembly deputy Williams Davila was present Thursday at the public hearing offered by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) in Cúcuta, Colombia, regarding the crisis in Venezuela, where he said he represents the dignity of the Venezuelan people.
“As a deputy to the National Assembly I exposed the flagrant violation of parliamentary immunity and of all rights that the deputies of the National Assembly have. Secondly, the armed attack that has taken place against the NA, the attack on Gilber Caro, on Juan Requesens and other persons linked to the NA,” said the leader of the Democratic Action party.
Dávila testified before the IACHR to the harassment he has been subjected to by Nicolás Maduro’s regime, in addition to his failure to comply with precautionary measures issued in his favor. He also witnessed the testimonies of persons whose relatives were killed by the FAES, and persons killed by the State security forces during the demonstrations.
“People who were crippled, who were left without eyes, the violation of social rights such as the lack of medicines, the fact that people are dying because they do not have medicines and that is why Maduro did not want the IACHR to enter Venezuela. Under no circumstances is the regime interested in the truth being known,” denounced the parliamentarian for the state of Mérida.
He also said that the congressmen who support President (E) Juan Guaidó will not stand idly by and count on the support of the IACHR and more than 60 countries to resolve the Venezuelan crisis that affects the entire region.
“The problem of gasoline, there is no fuel in Mérida, people spend between nine and 10 days to fill up (a car tank) with gasoline, the lights (electrical power) go out, etc (…) All of this generates a dark picture of collective violations of social, economic, civil, and political rights, in other words, it is a range of systematic human rights violations. This regime goes down in history as one of the most criminal regimes in the history of the world,” he remarked.
