The presidential commissioner for Foreign Relations, Julio Borges, highlighted this Tuesday that the Venezuelan military have been the main victims of Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship.
The representative of the Legitimate Government indicated that of the 321 political prisoners that exist in Venezuela, 129 are military officials.
“Many have chronic diseases and are denied medical attention, others are in cells that do not meet the conditions, are deprived of food, denied visits from relatives and the right to defense and due process,” Borges warned in a message released in their official networks.
The head of Venezuelan diplomacy stressed that it is “a cruelty by Maduro against patriotic officials who want a sovereign, free and democratic Venezuela.”
“We call on human rights organizations around the world and on countries not to forget these heroes and to press to guarantee their release,” he added.
Finally, Borges denounced that Maduro’s dictatorship, with the support of Cuba, has built a system of torture against our FANB (Fuerza Armada Nacional Bolivariana) officers.
“This implies that they are subjected to inhumane and cruel acts, with the aim of fabricating testimonies to incriminate other officials and political leaders,” he concluded.
