The National Association of Democratic Lawyers (NADEL) condemns the attack on the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela during the commemoration of the Venezuelan National Guard.
The attack on the sovereignty of Venezuela, after a peaceful recent election in May 2018 where his excellency Nicola Maduro was elected, is an indictment of imperialist infiltration in the democracy of the Bolivarian Republic. We welcome reports that some of the perpetrators have been arrested and we congratulate the Venezuelan Security Cluster on their swift action.
NADEL further pledges its unwavering support for the people of Venezuela and its leadership.
NADEL condemns terrorism and describes such terror attacks as crimes against humanity and a serious violation of human rights and dignity.
