Organization representing Venezuelan journalist Luis Carlos Díaz demands dismissal of his case

“Two years and seven months after his arbitrary detention, Espacio Público demands once again the dismissal of the case against Luis Carlos Díaz, a journalist and human rights defender whose court case continues despite the lack of evidence against him and even though the prosecutor's office has not delivered the final act of its investigation.

According to Judge Yislent Infante Medina, the prosecutor's office had until Dec. 9, 2020 to deliver the final act, one more year than what is stipulated by law for the investigation; However, because of the quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were lapses in the procedure. In November 2021, almost two years later, the State is still lacking in terms of the case, it has not responded to the defense's requests and there is no justice for Díaz."
