The health of Guillermo Zárraga continues to severely deteriorate

AI-Index:

The health of Guillermo Zárraga, a 59-year-old Venezuelan former unionist who was arbitrarily detained in Venezuela in November 2020, continues to severely deteriorate.

We have recently learned that his son has now started a hunger strike, in protest of the inhumane detention conditions that his father is being kept in.

The urgency of the situation cannot be understated, as Guillermo continues to suffer severe weight loss, cardiac episodes, and has repeatedly fainted due to very limited access to adequate food.
