Utah man jailed in Venezuela pleas for freedom in video

Utah man jailed in Venezuela pleas for freedom in video

Alfredo Romero, a lawyer with the Penal Forum rights group which provides legal representation for prisoners, met relatives of prisoners in front of the headquarters of intelligence agency Sebin, known as the Helicoide, where hundreds of people are held.

Activists say inmates have taken control of Venezuela's most notorious political prison - the El Helicoide facility in Caracas - on the eve of a highly controversial presidential election that opponents have denounced as a fraud.

Shortly afterward, the couple was arrested at her family's apartment in a Caracas public housing project after police said they found him stockpiling arms - an assault weapon and grenades. Photos of a man with a bruised face who was identified as Sanabria were also posted on social media.

In a video seen on Twitter late on Wednesday Holt said, "I'm here to show you that I am not being kidnapped". "I have been begging my government for two years".

In 2016 Holt traveled to Venezuela to marry Thamara Candela. They're outside, they're trying to break in. "They're trying to kill me". "They are saying that they want me as their guarantee". "That delegation spoke to a representative of the prisoners to respond to their requests", chief prosecutor Tarek Saab tweeted.

The film follows the most tumultuous four years in the life of Manto during the time of Partition of India and Pakistan. Apart from him, the cast includes Rasika Dugal, Divya Dutta and Tahir Raj Bhasin in pivotal roles.

In two brief movies shot on a cellphone and posted Wednesday on his Fb web page, Joshua Holt stated his life was threatened throughout a disturbance by inmates who embody President Nicolas Maduro's prime opponents.

The Holt family released a statement through Trujillo, saying they were both "deeply troubled and concerned" about the riots.

"The Sebin has told me that as long as my Government continues attacking this Government, and as long as Marco Rubio continues talking about me, the longer that they will never let me go", Mr Holt said in a written message, referring to the Republican senator from Florida who has accused Mr Maduro of keeping Mr Holt as a "hostage" to extract concessions from the US. Maduro has said all jailed activists were being held on legitimate charges of violence and subversion.

"Joshua Holt and other US citizens are in danger".

His family has denied the accusations, and believe the Venezuelan government is holding Holt and his wife to bargain with the USA, which has imposed economic sanctions on the country. It said: "Venezuela's government is directly responsible for their safety and we will hold them responsible if anything happens to them".
