Cardinal urges Government to stop persecution against officials
The Archbishop of Caracas called on the parties to engage in dialogue and remarked that the Constitution of Venezuela enshrines Venezuelans' political rights
"That must stop immediately; it must cease straight away," Urosa told radio station Unión Radio as he referred to reports of persecution and harassment against civil servants and dissenters by pro-government sectors. The reports have been filed by human rights and political organizations recently.
According to Urosa, it is impossible to engaging in dialogue in Venezuela as long as public servants are being chased on the assumption that they voted an option different from the government's.
Urosa remarked that the Constitution clearly enshrines Venezuelans' political rights.
At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis. Whether it was hopping on the subway, finding directions, playing waiting games at public agencies, eating whatever he could and sleeping wherever he could, Guerrero senior had been wandering the streets for 60 days, and thanks to "the boys" he found some sort of relief by way of helping hands.
