Venezuelan Attorney General Tarek William Saab this Sunday defended the “restructuring” of the country’s security forces in response to complaints of human rights abuses made in a report by the United Nations.
“It is time for a restructuring not only of the FAES, but of various police forces,” Saab said in an interview with the Venezuelan public television.
Saab has highlighted that the public ministry has indicted dozens of officials in cases like that of Guacamaya TV or that of the Portuguesa Prison, as their office is charged with dealing with these incidents and issuing calls for attention.
Therefore, both the Bolivarian National Police (PNB) and the Special Actions Force always have to take care of restructuring and cleaning. “It is important to the public health and safety in the country that this review be cyclical,” he argued.
