The United States ambassador to Venezuela, James Story, demanded that Javier Tarazona, a political prisoner of Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship, receive immediate medical attention before it is too late.
“Four days ago, the political prisoner Gabriel Medina died after a month dying without attention,” Story recalled in a message released through his social network account.
Likewise, the US diplomat called on Maduro to release all political prisoners in Venezuela.
The health of Javier Tarazona, director of the ONG ‘FundaREDES’, is compromised due to his diabetes and hypertension conditionS.
The case of Tarazona is not isolated among the political prisoners of Maduro’s dictatorship, all caused by the precarious conditions of the regime’s jails and the refusal to allow access to any medical care. Other prisoners are in serious danger, as is the case of the journalist Roland Carreño, who was denied medical attention despite his delicate situation.
“Our brother Roland Carreño suffered a hypertensive crisis at the PNB headquarters and was denied his right to medical assistance. We call on international organizations to intercede for the lives of our political prisoners,” denounced this Wednesday, the Director of the Office of the Presidency in Charge, Luis Somaza.
