After 491 days in illegal detention, Alex Saab is today “kidnapped” in the United States, according to a plan orchestrated in collusion with Cape Verde; which has allowed this inhumane action, which has violated all international diplomatic rights, as well as human rights.
After the extradition of Venezuelan Ambassador Alex Saab, a mobilization was called in the city of Caracas, for today, Sunday, October 17; to reject the action that was catalogued as a “kidnapping” by the U.S. authorities.
It is expected that after the mobilization, Saab wife, Camilla Fabri, will give a press conference at Plaza Bolivar in Caracas at 3:00 pm.
Venezuela respects itself
Jorge Rodríguez, head of the delegation of Nicolás Maduro’s administration in the negotiations in Mexico; announced that they suspended their participation in the new round of dialogue, scheduled for this Sunday, in response to the extradition of Alex Saab.
“We will not attend the negotiation round that would take place tomorrow, Sunday, in Mexico. We blame Ivan Duque, Guaidó, Leopoldo López and Carlos Paparoni. We will defend our comrade Alex Saab,” said Rodriguez during a press conference.
Rodriguez branded this action as an aggression against the entire international legal order; against international law, against the diplomatic investiture of Alex Saab and his status at the negotiation and dialogue table.
He stated that “Venezuela will take this case to all Human Rights instances” and “we hold Iván Duque responsible; the factors that insist on aggression against Venezuela and that attempt against the peace of our Republic”.
