A complaint will be filed with domestic and foreign organizations
for "the crime committed by the current government, under
the aegis of President Hugo Chávez, where there is forced
political participation and indoctrination, abusing of the
rights of free thinking and protection of identity of Venezuelan
children," Antonio Ledezma, the head of opposition Alianza
Bravo Pueblo, said.
The complaint will be made with the Attorney General Office to attest to "all such irregularities," and to the Venezuelan Chapter of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (Unicef.)
He regretted that the Attorney General Office fails to protect Venezuelan children. Last Sunday, during the TV and radio show "Aló Presidente," a girl "appeared to praise, extol the personality of the current President of the Republic," the official claimed.
According to Ledezma, this is evidence of indoctrination advanced by the Government, "and it is also a sample of what they want to do in the schools with those projects that the Government intends to approve in the so-called National Assembly."
LOPEZ CASE The Venezuelan mission at the United Nations in Geneva has sent a notice to the Office of United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights (UNCHR) labeling as "unreasonable" the latter's petition to release Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo López.
HUMAN RIGHTS Spanish President Mariano Rajoy and Lilian Tintori, the wife of Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo López, gathered on Wednesday in Madrid. At the meeting, Rajoy expressed his concerns about the detention of the dissenter, whose immediate release was requested by the United Nations in a resolution issued recently.
LOPEZ'S CASE Lilian Tintori, the wife of detained opposition leader Leopoldo López, asserted on Tuesday that "justice is militarized in Venezuela," because the Venezuelan government "has not observed" the resolution issued by the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention of the United Nations (UN) asking for the release of her husband.
