Álvarez de Toledo will promote an institutional declaration of Congress in support of the 31 Venezuelan deputies disabled by the dictator Maduro

The spokeswoman for the Popular Parliamentary Group, Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo, has held a meeting in Congress with Ambassador Antonio Ecarri, Special Envoy of the President in Charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, when 100 days of the disqualification of the first vice president of the Assembly National of Venezuela, Edgar Zambrano, by the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro.

At the meeting, Ambassador Ecarri delivered to the GPP Spokesman two reports: one made by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachellet, and another prepared by the National Assembly of Venezuela itself, which details the persecution of the Maduro regime against legitimately elected parliamentarians in that country.

The Bachelet report highlights that, in 2018 alone, there were 5,287 violent deaths due to alleged “resistance to authority,” which the Venezuelan Observatory of Violence (OVV) NGO raises to 7,523. Violent deaths that, between January and May of this 2019, claimed another 2,124 lives, which “may constitute extrajudicial executions,” according to the UN report.

The Ambassador and the Spokesman expressed concern about the devastating account that the Bachelet report makes about the Maduro dictatorship: repression and murders at the hands of what the report qualifies as "death squads" of Maduro. "It is an atrocious dictatorship, allied with the underworld and drug trafficking, which seeks the preservation of power at the expense of life, welfare and humanity of Venezuelans," said Alvarez de Toledo.

The GPP Spokeswoman informed Ambassador Ecarri of the initiatives that will be launched in support of the Democrats of Venezuela: “We are going to urge the Congress of Deputies to make an institutional declaration of vigorous condemnation of the attacks suffered by parliamentarians in Venezuela, because they are our counterparts and they are the legitimate representatives of the people of Venezuela. They have all our support and solidarity, and we want Congress to express it institutionally. ”
