Human rights advocate and attorney Elenis Rodríguez termed "gibe" the refusal by the Venezuelan government of an amnesty bill produced by the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) as part of the talks intended to break the stalemate in Venezuela.

"If the amnesty law was rejected by the government, what dialogue are we talking about?" wondered the president of human rights NGO Fundeci. At the same time, she required the Venezuelan government to stop "playing games" with the life of Iván Simonovis

The former chief police officer was meted out 30-year imprisonment for the events of April 11, 2002 during the failed coup against the government of late President Hugo Chávez.

"Why should renewed testing be accepted for the commissary? Did the round table forget that in July 2013, Simonovis was death threatened by acute peritonitis and shortly after the surgery, he was admitted to the emergency room again due to acute enterocolitis, intestinal infection, kidney failure and uncontrolled blood pressure?" the lawyer broke down.
