Venezuela's ombudsman receives files in defense of political prisoners
Some 125 files have been lodged with the Venezuelan Ombudsman's Office in an attempt to speed up the process for an amnesty request made to the Executive Office
Venezuela's opposition Deputy Edgar Zambrano delivered 125 files to the Ombudsman's Office on Thursday in defense of exiles and political prisoners within an amnesty request made to the Executive Office.
The congressman pointed out that promoting and monitoring Human Rights were among the duties of said office.
He also expressed that he understood the driving forces limiting the accomplishment of such a goal, yet he underscored that it was his duty to carry out all these procedures.
A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
