September 6, 2020

A study by various non-governmental organizations documented at least 201 extrajudicial executions in Caracas and the neighboring state of Miranda in the first six months of the year.

Specifically, there would be 129 in Miranda state and 72 in the capital district, according to the work of the Gumilla Center and the Venezuelan Education Action Program (Provea) published in SIC magazine.

In most cases, the authorities’ version is that the person died after confrontation with the security forces, which is why they appear in official statistics as “deaths due to opposition to authority”.
