Liliana Ortega threatened

May 21, 2004

El Foro por la Vida, a coalition of human rights organizations condemned today the threats on the life of Liliana Ortega. Ortega, the Head of COFAVIC has been receiving threats and pamphlets against her have been thrown at the entrance of the building where that organization has her office. The pamphlets say “Am I getting paid to defend the rights of the crooks from the opposition” and say “May she rest in peace”.


Ortega is one of the leading fighters against human rights violations in Venezuela and has done, in my opinion, an incredible and consistent job over the last fifteen years.
