Court releases the three Yukpas detained in Maracaibo on conditional release

The Yukpa indigenous people had been detained after being accused of blocking the bridge that crosses Lake Maracaibo and disturbing public order, according to the general commander of the Bolivarian National Police, Elio Estrada.


On the afternoon of this June 28, the three Yukpa indigenous people who had been detained on June 15 during the demonstrations that took place at the Bridge over Lake Maracaibo were released on parole.

The decision was made by the Sixth Court of Control of the Criminal Judicial Circuit of the state of Zulia.

The indigenous people who were released on parole are: Zenaida Romero, Francisquito Romero and Alfonso Romero, who were in command of the Bolivarian National Police in the San Francisco municipality.

The Yukpa indigenous people had been detained after being accused of blocking the bridge that crosses Lake Maracaibo and disturbing public order, according to the general commander of the Bolivarian National Police, Elio Estrada.

However, the indigenous leaders affirmed that the State security forces blocked their way when they tried to go to Caracas to sell their handicrafts and that is why their protests originated.

In this context, Felipe Romero Romero, one of the caciques of the Yaza basin, assured Radio Fe y Alegría News that it cannot be considered a crime to try to transport their handicrafts.

“We went out as a cooperative to sell our handicrafts and they locked us up,” he commented on June 27, during a rally at the Maracaibo Palace of Justice where they demanded the release of their countrymen.
