Twenty-eight Venezuelans who remain in custody on the premises of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) in Caracas through a letter requested the Venezuelan Executive Vice-President Aristóbulo Istúriz to establish a Truth Commission to assess their cases.
The signers termed themselves “political prisoners at the government secret service headquarters,” arguing their petition comes because they must tell their story.
“We must relate our story. We are the victims. Based on this, we reiterate our request to resume the initiative, under international guidelines and standards required to create a Truth Commission in compliance with the Constitution on the part of the interested parties (victims, legal counsels, the State and the Catholic Church represented by the Nuncio).”
Upon claiming the cases “call into question the observance of the Constitution and laws” by judges, the political prisoners told Istúriz that they have been always willing to make allegations regularly, expecting to be released.
