A Venezuelan opposition delegation continues to tour Europe in order to report on the presidential election fraud and the authoritarianism of the Venezuelan Government.

On Thursday the delegation, comprised by opposition Deputies Tomás Guanipa and Ángel Medina along with former Ambassador Edmundo González, was welcomed in Berlin by officials of the Foreign Affairs Office. After Germany, the delegation will visit both Netherlands and Portugal. The group is expected to return to Venezuela on April 29.

"Everybody has been closely monitoring the crisis taking place in Venezuela upon the electoral results. They are convinced about the need for strengthening democracy. They are expecting the audit requested by (Venezuelan opposition leader) Henrique Capriles and hope it is conducted as comprehensively as necessary. They all believe that the most important issue is respect for Venezuelans' will, as expressed in the election of April 14," Guanipa told daily newspaper El Universal.

"It was a candid dialogue; we referred to the Venezuelan political state of affairs and the risks of the Government's authoritarianism in terms of its democratic deficit. We presented the systematic harassment campaign that dissenters are subject to, the aggressions against opposition deputies, the threats against private physicians, the criminalization of social protests, and the persecution against civil servants who have an opinion different from that of the Government."
