The General Director of FUNDAREDES, Javier Tarazona, delivered a balance of the conflict and violence that is lived in the Venezuelan border to the Permanent Commission of Foreign Policy, Sovereignty and Integration of the National Assembly.
“We have observed the perverse way in which the regime has been acting, when it has placed in each refuge in Arauquita members of the DGCIM and Sebin (inteligence agencies), who have been committing any number of actions to restrain the displaced population of Victoria from denouncing what has happened,” said Tarazona.
Likewise, he warned that the Venezuelan military have been massacred by the Guerrilla. “There are 13 soldiers missing since last April 23rd, when 28 soldiers were deployed from two helicopters.”
“Other soldiers were also injured when they were traveling in two boats that tried to search for information on the victims who were in the La Capilla area,” he added.
Faced with this situation, he expressed his concern that the conflict could spread to other states in the country and the rest of the region.
“We ask this Commission to alert the international community to the expansion of this conflict,” Tarazona told the Permanent Commission on Foreign Policy, Sovereignty and Integration of Parliament.
Furthermore, he pointed out that when we speak at present of 21 entities with operations of irregular armed groups we are practically saying “They took Venezuela.”
THEY USED THE MILITARY AS CANNON FODDER
On the other hand, the expert wondered why the dictatorship has not spoken out in the face of the murders committed by the guerrillas against the Venezuelan military.
“I demand from this Commission that Mr. Ceballos, Chief of Operations of the FANB, to report on the integrity of the military.”
Likewise, he denounced that in recent days, the phones have been taken away from the soldiers in Apure. “The relatives of the military contacted us in Fundaredes to see what we know about their children, their brothers, their husbands, because they took away their right to communicate.”
“They were deployed without protection, without having made a war plan, while the guerrilla leaders sit in Miraflores next to the regime,” he repudiated.
To conclude, he regretted that the guerrillas themselves show our fallen military and Venezuelan weapons as a trophies. “The armed forces were not able to collect the bodies of their brothers in arms.”
