In reference to videos posted in social networks depicting lynching scenes, Venezuelan Ombudsman Tarek William Saab said the country's justice system must be strengthened.
He explained that people who "take the law in their own hands turn into murderers." He further rejected the dissemination of such videos on the Internet, for this "advocates crime." He added that people publishing such videos in order to denounce crimes end up advertising crimes.
"A group of people, including minors, who have killed an alleged criminal must be put in the hands of the Venezuelan justice system and be prosecuted, for they have violated the law," the ombudsman stated.
Saab further noted that the question of insecurity does not "justify lynching (...). We must be aware of this."
