Maduro Dictatorship Tortures Opponent to Death

Press Statement
Morgan Ortagus, Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
June 30, 2019

The United States condemns the killing and torture of Capitan de Corbeta Rafael Acosta Arévalo, a Venezuelan Naval Officer, who died while in the custody of Maduro’s thugs and their Cuban advisers. We express deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.

This is not the first time the Maduro regime has used violence against its political prisoners. We recall clearly the horrifying events of October 8, 2018, when Councilman Fernando Alban was murdered while in regime custody.

This latest act of Maduro’s barbarism must stir us to action. The United States calls on the democracies of the world to join us in condemning this latest violation of human rights and in applying pressure to achieve accountability against the aggressors.

So this is still going on but nothing that isn't new or news but did read this today thought it was news worthy to post, to me it shows the US still is paying attention to what is happening there, just glad the Russians are staying out of it...:

Glad to meet again with Foreign Minister @CarlosHolmesTru. The U.S. remains grateful to the Colombian people for their generosity towards fleeing Venezuelans. We continue to work with #Colombia to combat illegal narcotics & to end the manmade humanitarian crisis in #Venezuela.
