Venezuela: Authorities should immediately release human rights defenders Javier Tarazona, Rafael Tarazona, and Omar García of FundaREDES

, Index number: AMR 53/4413/2021

The undersigned organizations wholly reject and express profound concern about the July 2 detention and incarceration of the three human rights defenders (HRDs) from the NGO Fundacion Redes (FundaREDES), including the organization’s director, Javier Tarazona, as well as activists Rafael Tarazona and Omar García. Their detention is the latest event reflecting rapidly escalating political persecution and criminalization of the HRDs in Venezuela who independently monitor, document, and report on the country’s critical human rights situation.
