A count of detentions recorded during anti-government protests in Venezuela from April 1 to date has yielded the number of 4,072, including 1,007 persons who remain imprisoned, reported human rights NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum.
Alfredo Romero, the NGO Executive Director, informed that 479 detainees have been brought in military courts.
Add to this number 444 people considered political prisoners, even though they were arrested before the beginning of the protests against the government of Nicolás Maduro. However, according to the human rights advocate, most detentions have taken place in the middle of the demonstrations.
