Venezuela: Journalist's family threatened after book publication

"Family members of Venezuelan journalist Ronna Rísquez were threatened on social media, denounced the NGO Espacio Público.

On their Twitter account, they pointed out that these actions of intimidation against eight of her relatives occurred at the end of this past January when the renowned investigative journalist spoke about a book she wrote. 'They received threats through Instagram after she spoke in Colombia about the book she wrote about the gang El Tren de Aragua,' said the non-governmental organization.

El Tren de Aragua is a group or gang that is based in the Tocorón prison, in Aragua state in Venezuela, but which has managed to expand to other South American countries such as Colombia and Chile."
