Deputy Renzo Prieto, denounced that the regime applies torture and systematic violation of human rights as a common practice in the Venezuelan prison system.
“The regime’s security forces believe that torture is normal, they don’t have the slightest shame when it comes to committing cruel torture, murder and crimes against humanity. They are criminals who commit these crimes to instill fear not only on prisoners for political reasons, but also on every Venezuelan dissenter.” he remarked.
The parliamentarian said that the visit of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, showed “a serious situation of human rights crisis in Venezuela.”
Prieto believes that human rights violations “will not end until there is a cessation of the usurpation of the national executive.”
