EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT GIVES ITS HIGHEST AWARD, SAKHAROV 2017 PRIZE FOR LIBERTY OF AWARENESS TO THE VENEZUELAN OPPOSITION

Strasbourg / European Parliament (EP) rewards Venezuelan opposition with Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Conscience, its highest recognition: the Venezuelan opposition, represented by the National Assembly and its president, Julio Borges, as well as by the leaders opponents Leopoldo López and Antonio Ledezma, among others, have been imposed on the other activists to the prize the Guatemalan activist Aura Lolita Chávez Ixcaquic and the journalist Dawit Isaak, imprisoned in 2001 in Eritrea.


“This award represents not only a recognition of the courageous resistance of the democratic opposition,” president of the Euro-Chamber Antonio Tajani, said. “The award – he added- seeks to pay homage to the entire Venezuelan people.”

The prize of 50,000 Euros is an annual award given by the European Parliament since 1988 to personalities or groups fighting for human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Among the winners are the South African leader Nelson Mandela, the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo or the Cuban dissident Guillermo Fariñas.

The award will be presented at a ceremony in Strasbourg on 13 December.

Last year it fell to two Yazidi activists who were victims of sexual slavery perpetrated by the Jihadist Islamic State in Iraq (Nadia Murad Basi Taha and Lamiya Ayi Bashar). (October 26, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
