Venezuela's National Assembly Deputy Edgar Zambrano, the leader of the parliamentary fraction of opposition party Acción Democrática (AD), has held a meeting with Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela Monsignor Pietro Parolin as part of the number of meetings and talks in favor of the freedom of prisoners and the return of people involuntarily living in exile.
The deputy, who currently coordinates the team in charge of dealing with this issue, expressed his satisfaction at the outcome of the meeting with the Apostolic Nuncio, who pledged to pray for the success of the initiative aimed at the reconciliation of Venezuelans. "The Nuncio expressed being delighted by this humanitarian action and informed us that he will be spiritually supporting its progress by praying for its success," he remarked.
Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
