Venezuela: Representative’s right to fair trial ignored

Index Number: AMR 53/1513/2019

Juan Requesens, Venezuelan Representative in the National Assembly has been in pre-trial detention since his arbitrary detention on 7 August 2018. After 14 months, his trial hearing was scheduled for Monday 25 November 2019, then postponed to 2 December, and again to 4 December. More delays are expected. The justice system in Venezuela constantly fails to comply with procedural time limits and the right to a fair trial without undue delays. We call for Juan Requesens to have a fair trial without undue delays.
