The Maduro regime frees Vilca Fernández and sends him to Peru
Vilca Fernández was detained since January 31, 2016 and remained in El Helicoide, headquarters of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin), and both opposition activists and her father reported that she was a victim of torture
The Venezuelan regime released the political prisoner Vilca Fernández on Thursday under the condition that he leave the country, for which he was sent to Peru, the birthplace of his father.
Fernandez was detained since January 31, 2016 and remained in El Helicoide, headquarters of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin). Both opposition activists and their families reported that he was a victim of torture.
Vilca Fernández, a university student, leader of opposition demonstrations and a former candidate for the National Assembly, was arrested by Venezuelan intelligence after tweeting against Chavez’s number two and vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello.
“In view of the fact that the police in Mérida do not stop you, I will do it, I am going to put you in jail”, was the threat that Cabello used in his television program “Con el mazo dando ‘, to which Fernández responded on Twitter:” You have the days counted. You have outstanding accounts with justice. I’m not afraid of you. ” Four days later, he was arrested.
Vilca’s father requested the support of the Peruvian government to find a solution for his son. As a result of that request, Congressman Jorge del Castillo (APRA) committed last year to denouncing Nicolás Maduro before the International Criminal Court.
On the other hand
“For those who have the keys to those cells that open them, the time has come for them to be free because they should never have been imprisoned,” said the father, Jorge Fernández, apparently together with Lilian Tintori, wife of Leopoldo López. A week ago.
According to information from the Venezuelan press and sources of this newspaper, the young man is traveling to Peru from the Maiquetía International Airport with a previous connection in Panama.
Vilca Fernández forma parte de la que sería la última fase de excarcelaciones del régimen de Nicolas Maduro, tras las medidas procesales otorgadas a 43 personas relacionadas con la “violencia política” en 2014 y 2018.
The measures applied to the third group of released are similar to those received by the 80 beneficiaries in the last two weeks and ranging from full freedom to the prohibition of leaving the country or making public statements.
Delcy Rodríguez, presidenta de la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente plenipotenciaria y gobernante (ANC) y vicepresidenta recientemente nombrada de Venezuela, dijo el miércoles que este grupo ha “culminado esta etapa importante para el gran diálogo nacional”.
Rodríguez recordó que todos los beneficios procesales para los 123 excarcelados fueron tramitados por la ANC junto al Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (TSJ) luego de que Maduro les pidiera dar “el otorgamiento de medidas sustitutivas de privación de libertad a las personas que habían incurrido en hechos de violencia”. con fines políticos “.
En el caso de Fernández, la orden del ANC fue el mar liberado con la condición de exiliarse en el Perú, en lugar de trasladado a Mérida, su ciudad natal.
