Emergency of prison infrastructure extended to three months
Minister Iris Varela reported that most of the inmates leaving Uribana will be taken to Yaracuy jail
Varela also reported that most of the inmates leaving Uribana will be taken to nearby Yaracuy.
She promised free transport for inmates' relatives from Lara state to the new prisons.
Varela is positive that her ministry actions show that government authorities are ready and determined to "bury the chapter of violence in the penitentiary system."
The minister briefed on nationwide sports activities from February. "We fight idleness with sports." She added that the purpose is to make the initiative of an international nature.
At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
