Urgent Action Update: Monitoring of Threats to Lawmakers Continues (Venezuela: UA 1.20)

July 13, 2020

Venezuelan National Assembly opposition members, as well as their families and staff, continue being subjected to threats and attacks from Maduro’s government. During the COVID-19-related state of emergency, attacks against political dissidents have not stopped. After more than six months of continued threats, we no longer consider an urgent action to be the most effective tool to diminish these risks. Amnesty International will continue to monitor the cases of arbitrary detainees such as Juan Requesens, Gilber Caro, and Renzo Prieto and react to new developments.

We have received updated information regarding this case and require no further action from the Urgent Action Network. Thank you to all those who sent appeals. For more information about this case, please see the Word/PDF attachments below or email [email protected]. ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
