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 shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
