During the inauguration of his new communication channel #ElSpacesDelFiscalTarek on the social network platform Twitter, the General Attorney of Venezuela, Tarek William Saab, described the detention of Ambassador Alex Saab as a kidnapping and repudiated the violation of his human rights by the Cape Verdean government.

The General Attorney of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Tarek William Saab, stated his position on the case of the Venezuelan Special Envoy and Alternate Ambassador to the African Union, Alex Saab and the different legal irregularities in his detention “has been used with much infamy to attack the Venezuelan institutionality, as his detention was totally illegal, I qualify it as kidnapping, he has a diplomatic ground that assists him, he did many lawful activities for the acquisition of medicines, food, among others”.

In fact, he informed that “in the middle of one of those activities he was illegally detained, where, as he himself has pointed out, his human rights have been totally violated, his right to defense, to due process, and they intend to present him as a trophy of a war that seems not to be of the fourth generation, but of the fifth, sixth generation”.

Let’s remember that more than 365 days have passed since the illegal detention of the Venezuelan ambassador in the African island; the whole world has seen how the government of Cape Verde has denied all international agreements and legal bases of its country to please and support the government of the United States in a political persecution of Alex Saab and the Venezuelan people.

In the midst of the criminal blockade and the sanctions that have exponentially affected the Venezuelan people; the Public Powers and the Bolivarian Government have had to face difficult moments to defend the truth of Venezuela in international instances, since the adverse factors of the right wing have focused on “placing obstacles and obstacles to a job, penalizing and criminalizing, seeking moral lynching; I am against all that and we must face it with courage, with dignity”.

Therefore, he clarified that this is “a daily task, which we are winning with the truth, do not forget that; the truth always comes to the surface and in this sense, I invite you to never lower your guard”.

“Today, in times of Pandemic, medicine, public health and its defense become the defense of human life”; assured Tarek William Saab, wondering that “who can be in favor, for example, of Venezuela being blocked with sanctions, being persecuted so that we cannot buy vaccines; those who agree with that are criminals. Because in the end that vaccine is going to save a mother, a daughter, a son, a grandchild.”

“Then, to be undermining the Venezuelan economy, to be confiscating goods, blocking accounts; so that medicines cannot be bought is a crime against humanity that must be denounced”, concluded Tarek William Saab.
