The Director of the Office of the Presidency in Charge, Luis Somaza, warned that Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship is condemning political prisoners to death by denying them the right to medical care.
“It is inadmissible that a person who has not committed any crime suffers a crisis that puts his life at risk, and still is denied medical attention,” Somaza condemned in a message released through his social networks.
Furthermore, the political leader demanded that Roland Carreño be transferred to a medical center immediately.
However, like Mr. Carreño, there are hundreds of political prisoners who are in compromised health conditions due to the precarious conditions in the regime’s dungeons and the refusal to provide medical attention, as is the case of Javier Tarazona, director of ONG ‘FundaREDES’.
Mr. Tarazona’s health is compromised due to his diabetes and hypertension. However, the dictatorship does not allow him to receive the necessary medical care to safeguard his life.
Faced with this serious situation, the United States ambassador to Venezuela, James Story, demanded that Javier Tarazona receive immediate medical attention before it is too late.
“Days ago, the political prisoner Gabriel Medina died after a month agonizing without attention,” Amb. Story recalled in a message released through his social network accounts.
