The president in charge of the Republic, Juan Guaidó, accompanied on Sunday family and friends of the social leader Edmundo “Pipo” Rada during the wake. The event took place in the house of the Rada’s grandfather in Petare.
He reiterated that those responsible for the murder of this neighborhood leader were members of Nicolás Maduro’s regime, who wanted to send a message of violence with this repudiated deed.
President in charge accompanied on Sunday family and friends of the social leader Edmundo “Pipo” Rada during the wake.
“The message sent by the dictatorship was clear to everyone who dissents but our answer is even clearer and more powerful, we are with his family, we are with Petare, we are with Venezuela, we raise up and accompany the teachers, the nurses and we will continue fighting. It is a practice of the regime, to murder leaders in popular sectors to generate a macabre fear.”
The body of “Pipo” was found Thursday on the Petare-Santa Lucia road burned to the neck and with two grace shots to the head. He disappeared a day before, after being searched by men who identified themselves as FAES officials.
Edmundo Rada carried out activism in different areas of Petare to encourage the neighbors to support the crusade led by the President (e) of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, against the dictatorship for which he was repeatedly threatened.
Juan Guaidó reiterated that those responsible for the murder were members of Nicolás Maduro’s regime.
“He was massacred, murdered vilely, executed, as has happened to the more than 18,000 that Human Rights Watch has registered in three years. The regime with these crimes seeks to generate a type of macabre control by killing political, social, and neighborhood leaders who simply want to live better”, said the president of the National Assembly.
The government of Spain pronounced itself before this murder and demanded an investigation, in addition to the Special Commissioner for Security and Intelligence, Iván Simonovis added that the inquiries they undertook point to the fact that it is another political assassination of the regime.
