During the inauguration of the International Book Fair, the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, baptized the book "Letters from Alex Saab since his kidnapping", where his letters and the events since his kidnapping by the US authorities were collected.
The head of state took the opportunity to once again denounce the kidnapping of diplomat Alex Saab, who was illegally transferred from Cape Verde to the United States (USA).
"It is a simple book, with values of selflessness of sacrifice, of a simple man that the only thing he did was help Venezuela," said the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro.
Maduro stressed that Saab, for helping Venezuela, was persecuted and kidnapped, tortured and "now they have him in the prisons of the (United States) empire, isolated."
He invited all the Venezuelan people to read the book that compiles Saab's letters to learn about its history first-hand.
The prologue of the book was in charge of Mario Silva and the presentation in charge of the journalist Pedro Carvajalino.
Present at the presentation was the diplomat's wife, Camila Fabri, who thanked the national government and the people of Venezuela for their support in the case that affects her family and stressed that she will not rest until she achieves her husband's freedom.
Similarly, journalist Carvajalino said that the diplomat's letters are symbolic and that the book will be translated into English and on digital platforms, “what is stated in the book is that what Saab did is not a sin, bringing food and medicine is not a sin, "he said.
On the other hand, during the activity the head of state relaunched the Koeyú magazine, with the title: "One Hundred Years of Paulo Freire: Pedagogy of the Oppressed."
