Venezuela’s Attorney General Luisa Ortega Díaz gave a number of recommendations during her presentation of the Report of Murder Prevention Mapping in Latin America and the Caribbean, prepared by the Laboratory of Analysis and Violence of Río de Janeiro State University.
During her presentation in the event held on Tuesday in the auditorium of the Public Prosecutor Ministry, Ortega Díaz referred to the findings of the survey conducted under the guidelines set in the Bogotá Protocol.
The senior officer expressed concern about “increasing violence” in Venezuela, as an outgrowth, she said, of a set of anti-values that endanger peaceful cohabitation.
She suggested that “political will of the stockholders is the first ingredient necessary for a successful murder prevention program.”
Ortega Díaz is certain that decreasing the murder rate is possible by strengthening the criminal court system, cleansing security agencies, using police force to capture the perpetrators of punishable offenses, recovering public spaces for leisure and conducting sports and cultural activities.
International guests, general and line directors, public prosecutors, experts and other staff of the Public Prosecutor Ministry attended the event.
