The deputies of the National Assembly demanded Tuesday that Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship to allow the entry of humanitarian aid through the channels established by the legitimate government of President Juan Guaidó to address the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Congresswoman Nora Bracho warned that in the current conditions that Venezuelans are living, “it is impossible for them to comply with the sanitary regulations to avoid this virus, due to the lack of drinking water, when one of the main preventive actions is to wash their hands.”
“Venezuela is one of the countries in the worst condition to face the coronavirus due to the absence of basic services, such as water, electricity, gas, to which we add the serious conditions in which our hospitals are in,” she remarked.
Bracho said that “the announcement made by Nicolás Maduro’s regime about 46 sentinel hospitals throughout the country is irresponsible and unconscious, since no hospital in our health system has the basic sanitary conditions.”
In addition, the parliamentarian for Un Nuevo Tiempo condemned that the dictatorship “the only thing they want is to take advantage of this situation is to continue being rooted in power, they are not interested in what we are suffering”.
Meanwhile, Congresswoman Adriana Pichardo demanded that the Maduro regime proceed to free all political prisoners in the country. “Today we are asking all international human rights organizations to intervene so that a humanitarian measure of freedom is issued for all political prisoners”.
“Other countries have already offered release to house detention measures for detainees due to the vulnerable conditions of those deprived of their liberty in detention centers,” she explained.
She also condemned the fact that Maduro’s regime is taking advantage of this situation to continue kidnapping Members of Parliament. “In the face of this active persecution it is more necessary than ever to raise our voices to preserve the lives of all political prisoners”.
