National Assembly (NA) Deputy Delsa Solórzano participated on Friday, November 8th, in a meeting with members of the NA’s Justice and Peace Commission with victims of human rights violations (HRDs) in Valencia, Carabobo state.
“Carabobo is one of the states where human rights have been violated the most, where there have been more deaths caused by the state in public demonstrations. It is one of the states, along with Aragua and Táchira, that have the most reports on human rights violations,” said Solórzano during the session.
One of the participants in the meeting was the representative of the Justice, Peace and Forgiveness Foundation, Rosa Orozco, who is the mother of Geraldine Moreno, a young woman murdered in the 2014 demonstrations. Orozco explained that out of approximately 300 cases nationwide, more than 70 Human Rights violations have been committed in Carabobo.
“There are 306 cases of violations in the context of the protests between 2014 and 2019. In Carabobo, 19 were in 2014, 25 in 2017, and between 2018 and 2019 there are 32 cases,” she added.
Solórzano said the complaints collected in this meeting will be transferred to the single registry of victims that is carried out under international parameters to do justice.
