Hours later, relatives of the inmates indicated that the riot had been suspended, “after reaching an agreement with the director of the police headquarters,” Commissioner Valmore Lago, the NGO said.

No statement from the Cicpc

Until the publication of this note there was no statement from the security agency or any of its authorities.

On March 16, a group of prisoners held in this center began a protest for overcrowding, procedural delay and the constant violation of their rights enshrined in the Constitution. At that time, part of their claims were heard and attended to; points out A Window to Freedom.

The Venezuelan Prison Observatory (OVP) presented in May its annual report 2021 on the situation in Venezuelan prisons, where they point to overcrowding, procedural delay and illness as the main problems of inmates, in addition to the inaction of the State that considers prisoners as “third-class citizens.”
