“Strange crimes” are attacks on the State

Attorney General, Luisa Ortega Díaz, believes that a recent wave of gruesome crimes in Venezuela is “strange and unusual,” and is fuelled by “by external attacks on the country.”


“Lately we have observed with grave concern, the presence of a series of anti-values in our society that are reflected on the strange and unusual violence of recent crimes. Undoubtedly, I would put in the first place [among the causes of these crimes] the attacks that have been waged against the Venezuelan State, not only internationally but also at the national level. Venezuela has been the victim of aggression especially at the international level. The attack [consists] on claims that in Venezuela Human Rights are being violated, that there is no access to education, culture, sports, housing, and food. This is an attack aimed, not only at disqualifying the institutions, but also the inhabitants [of Venezuela],” said Ortega Díaz in a forum entitled “Prevention and Citizens Security.”
