Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino, the Archbishop of Caracas, on Tuesday urged authorities to stop "immediately" the persecution of civil servants supporting the opposition and called on the parties to overcome the political crisis Venezuela is facing.

"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.
