Venezuela: the faces of impunity: a year after the protests, victims still await justice
A year after the pro and anti-government protests that shook Venezuela between February and July 2014, hundreds of victims of human rights abuses are still awaiting justice. More than 43 people died and a further 878 were injured during the protests. Scores were ill-treated and 3,351 were detained, 27 of whom remain in detention awaiting trial. At the time of writing, 2 March 2015, all those responsible had not been brought to justice, victims and their relatives had yet to receive reparations and those arbitrarily detained had not been released, showing a clear lack of political will on the part of the Venezuelan authorities to ensure that these grave human rights violations are not repeated.
