THERE ARE ALREADY 39 DEAD IN VENEZUELA

Venezuelan Public Ministry (MP, Prosecutor’s Office) reported the death of the young man, Miguel Castillo, 27, in the area Las Mercedes, east of Caracas, and there are already 39 deaths in the protests in the last 40 days in the Caribbean country.

 


Venezuelan security forces dispersed today with tear gas a demonstration with thousands of opponents that was on the main highway of Caracas and intended to reach the headquarters of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) in the center of the capital .

EFE noted that while the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) fired tear gas and water jets to disperse the protest, a group of protesters responded with stones, paint cans and jars with excrements, known as “puputov.”

Some deputies like Juan Requesens and Juan Andrés Mejía and the two times presidential candidate ofVenezuela, Henrique Capriles, spread videos through the social networks of the police repression in the protests.

On Wednesday, the Venezuelan Prosecutor’s Office reported in a statement the death of Anderson Dugarte, a 32-year-old motorcycle driver, wounded in the head by a “firearm” on Monday in a demonstration in the state of Mérida.

Dugarte died yesterday at the Hospital Universitario de Los Andes, in the capital of Merida.

Demonstrations in Venezuela, for and against the government of President Nicolás Maduro, have also left hundreds injured and almost 2,000 detained.

In Miami, the Inter American Press Association (IAPA) has publicly repudiated the arrest and attack with pepper spray to Venezuelan journalist and opposition leader Sergio Contreras, and has urged the government to report about whereabouts.

The Bolivarian National Police (PNB) today arrested Contreras, a leader of the Popular Will (VP) party, when he met a group of opponents in central Caracas and was about to march to the Supreme Court.

Roberto Rock, chairman of the IAPA’s Committee on Freedom of the Press and Information, said: “It is the responsibility of the authorities to report on the whereabouts of the journalist and the charges against him.”
