Venezuelan gov't at odds with ex police chief's release
Vice-President Maduro put the blame on the former police inspector for "manipulating with innocents"
"As a government, we continue asking for justice (...) All the weight of law should fall on those criminals. There should be no impunity for those crimes and those criminals. There should be no impunity." These words were uttered by Maduro after a meeting on Thursday by midday with the Association of Victims of April 11 and its attorney Amado Molina at the Vice-President Office.
Last Wednesday, Ivana Simonovis, the daughter of the ex-secretary of Citizen's Security with the Metropolitan Major Mayoralty, forwarded a letter to Maduro, asking the government for her father's release for health reasons. According to relatives, Iván Simonovis suffers from severe osteoporosis.
Anyhow, almost at 6:00 p.m., while voicing respect for Simonovis' daughter and wife, as "it is not their fault," blamed the inspector for using them. "They should not try manipulation by making innocent people cover the crimes perpetrated by people who worked for the CIA for years."
At the recent UN climate summit President Nicolás Maduro gave a speech on global warming highlighting the fact that "Capitalism has ignored over decades nature's capacity to load and recover," and, accordingly, "if we want to change climate, we need to change the system."
