The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Julio Borges, spoke on Tuesday morning after a year since the murder of Councilor Fernando Albán, who was tortured to death by officials of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), by order of Nicolás Maduro’s regime.
Furthermore, Borges demanded justice for Councilman Albán and said that Maduro’s dictatorship will not succeed in soiling the name “of a social fighter like Fernando, his dream was to see Venezuela free”, he said.
“Today is one year since the murder of my brother Fernando Albán, the country continues to demand justice for him and for all those who have been tortured and killed. You can never soil the name of a social fighter like Fernando, his dream was to see Venezuela free”, the Venezuelan diplomat wrote through his official Twitter account.
FERNANDO ALBÁN DID NOT COMMIT SUICIDE, HE WAS KILLED
The deputy of the National Assembly, Amelia Belisario, said that the former director of SEBIN confirmed the murder of Albán. “Similarly, police reports and international media investigations show that he was viciously tortured and then thrown from the 10th floor of the Bolivarian Intelligence Service SEBIN.”
On the other hand Mariela Albán, sister of the councilor Fernando Albán denounced that a year after the murder no justice has been done in this case, among other irregularities she denounced that it has not been allowed to exhume the body to perform the respective autopsy requested by international organizations. “Nor do they let us see the file or review how the case is going, I am sure that my brother did not commit suicide, my brother was killed.”
“In the same way our lawyer had to leave the country due to threats and harassment, my sister-in-law and my nephews, that is, Albán’s wife and children are also abroad.”
