Venezuela: Venezuelan photographer finally released

Index Number: AMR 53/6863/2023

Carlos Debiais, a Venezuelan photographer unfairly detained since 12 November 2021, was finally released from prison on 6 June 2023. He had been issued a release warrant in April 2022 which prison authorities refused to execute, keeping him arbitrarily detained for the next 15 months. His release is contingent on him reporting to the court every 60 days, which remains a cause of concern.
