In the name of opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) Caracas Metropolitan Mayor Antonio Ledezma filed with the local chapter of the Organization of American States (OAS) a request from Member States to speak up and issue an opinion on the current state of affairs in Venezuela.

Accompanied by hundreds of demonstrators, deputies María Corina Machado, Ismael García and Delsa Solórzano,together with El Hatillo Mayor David Smolansky, expressed their annoyance at the attitude of neighboring countries. The metropolitan mayor cautioned the OAS against the breach of agreements signed by Venezuela.

"Dear OAS Sirs, Dear Mr. (OAS Secretary-General José Miguel) Insulza, you were appointed to preside over that body; not to defend your incumbency, but to advocate the rights of democratic people in the world," Ledezma said, according to a press briefing.

The paper handed over to the OAS includes a proposal to entrust a high-level commission with the task of visiting Venezuela in order to check the status of institutions and confirm human rights abuses.
