Venezuelan court denies humanitarian measure for ex police chief
Based on "unofficial" data, conditional release for humanitarian reasons was denied to ex police commissioner Iván Simonovis, twitted his wife Bonnie Simonovis
"I am emotionally shattered. I cannot cope with so much Bolivarian hatred and bitterness," the police's wife posted on the social network.
Defense attorney Enrique Perdomo promised to officially give the news on Thursday afternoon, as soon as he is in possession of the case file.
"I have no access to the case file; I do not know of any warrant of transfer from Sebin (National Bolivarian Intelligence Service) to Ramo Verde (jail) issued by the court," he explained.
The lawyer clarified that any transfer would mean that the application for conditional release for humanitarian reasons has been dismissed and would show disregard of the serious health condition of the police commissioner.
Since the Venezuelan government imposed currency and price controls in 2003 property rights have been seriously affected, as the individual's freedom to acquire, use, enjoy and dispose of property has been severely restricted, according to experts.
