Urgent Action outcome: Detainee released
Gilber Caro, who was disappeared, arbitrarily detained and held incommunicado for almost two months, was released on 17 June 2019, prior to a United Nations Human Rights High Commissioner’s visit to Venezuela.
Amnesty International helped keeping Caro’s profile high and visible, but we know there were some other efforts to secure his release in the framework of Bachelet’s official visit to Venezuela, such as one called “the Boston Group” which had accomplished the release of another person who was subjected to arbitrary detentions in 2018.
NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUESTED FROM THE NETWORK. MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT APPEALS.
