The journalist and influencer Luis Carlos Diaz, who was arrested Monday night by officials of the Bolivarian intelligence service of Venezuela, better known as SEBIN, was released after a little over 24 hours. After this act the national union of workers of the press (SNTP), the guild of journalists, among many other personalities in the area, spoke out against this irregularity, making the usurper Nicolás Maduro responsible for his physical integrity.
Luis Carlos Díaz public in his social networks that after a hearing of 5 hours he was accused of the crime of “instigation to commit a crime” as a consequence of having him banned from leaving the country and having to show up every 8 days to make statements about his case .
Luis Carlos Díaz said “I have a thousand stories, but for now I can not say anything, thank you very much”, were the words of the journalist, after being released on Tuesday night at the headquarters of Sebin, in the Helicoide located in Caracas, the capital from the country.
To all this the SNTP published in its Twitter account that prohibit Luis Carlos Diaz to disclose information about what happened is one more form of censorship, because only he knows the details of how he was captured and under what conditions he was treated until his release, It is presumed that he was mistreated and beaten during the whole process.
On the other hand, it should be noted that the Public Ministry manifested that it was an open hearing, however, it was not allowed access to journalists, representatives of human rights organizations and their own lawyers, who were also prohibited from declaring or disclosing any type of information that is related to the journalist’s case.
Actually, the real reason for the young journalist’s capture was the fact that the government wants to implicate him as responsible for the national blackout that left the entire country with more than 72 hours without electric power and in some places it was up to 100 hours without electricity, since the government handles a theory little sustained that this incident was caused by external and internal sabotage.
Finally, the social communicator showed his wide thanks for the international support that was manifested asking for his release, “I did not hear anything until suddenly I was told that even Bachelet (former president of Chile) talked about this, that depended on you as well Really, thank you!”, he emphasized.
