Cabello on the case of Orlando Figuera: “We are obliged to do justice”

He said that former prosecutor Luisa Ortega did not investigate the event because it was part of the “denial of justice plan.”

The first vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello Rondón, highlighted this Wednesday that the crime against the young Orlando Figuera, burned alive on May 21, 2017, was not investigated during the administration of the former attorney general of the República, the fugitive from justice Luisa Ortega, because “she was part of the plan, of the denial of justice, of impunity.”

He explained that at that moment "there was that prosecutor, who in the investigation said that it had only been the result of a fight, and that she could not open any investigation because those videos were manipulated."

“No, it was part of the plan, of the denial of justice, of impunity, that is why the monster of Salamanca (the name by which Leopoldo López is called) was only set on fire (in the investigation). And the 43 deaths caused by his call to violence?” he asked.

Cabello highlighted that even the extreme right accuses the Bolivarian Government of what happened to Figuera, "when they go to file their petty complaints over there (international organizations), they accuse us."

He specified that the intellectual authors of that murder were “Leopoldo López, María Corina Machado, (Julio) Borges, Ramos Allup, (Antonio) Ledezma, (Henrique) Capriles, the same as always.”

He recalled that in the ordinary session of the National Assembly (AN), held last Tuesday, May 21, his proposal was approved and it was ordered to open a real, timely and immediate investigation into the murder of the 21-year-old young man and the whereabouts of the homicidal “The Homeland Bloc bench approved that investigation,” he noted.

He stressed that it is public, notorious and communicational that Figuera's murderer "is protected by the government of Spain, he is not a politically persecuted person, he is a murderer, who set fire to a human being, just for looking like a Chavista, for being black and have curly hair.”

During his program Con el Mazo Dando, Cabello commented that the murder of young Pedro Josue Carrillo is unpunished, “they also burned him alive in Barquisimeto (…) seven years later this young man has not been given justice either,” for that reason, he added that “we should not be left alone with the murder of Orlando Figuera.”

“Our martyrs hurt us deeply,” he said.
