Iván Simonovis, ex inspector of the former Judicial Technical Police (currently, Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency, Cicpc), was taken to the hospital for medical tests.

"Thanks to the support of our attorneys, the media and social networks, @simonovis was taken to hospital for medical treatment," his wife and attorney Bony de Simonovis tweeted.

Simonovis' attorney José Luis Tamayo said that the inspector, sentenced to 30 years of prison for the events of April 11, 2002 was admitted to hospital until Wednesday. There, his treating doctors will conduct a battery of tests.

Last week, a letter by Simonovis was released concerning his support to ongoing talks between the government and the opposition with regard to the release of political prisoners and return of exiles.

"I welcome the initiative and once again embolden Venezuelans to back such proposal in a massive, democratic and sound manner," he noted.
