Abstract:

Methodology -- Background -- Arbitrary arrests and physical abuse of detainees -- Abuses in the streets -- Acknowledgments -- Annex of cases -- Annex: Letter to the Venezuelan government.

"[This report] documents 88 cases of abuse involving at least 314 victims committed by different security forces in multiple locations, including in closed environments like military installations, between April and September 2017. The cases include instances of excessive force on the streets; arbitrary detention, including of individuals pulled from their homes or arrested in incidents unrelated to the demonstrations; and physical abuse of detainees ranging from severe beatings to torture involving electric shocks, asphyxiation, and other techinques. There is no indication that Venezuelan high-level officials - including those who knew or should have known about the abuses - have taken any steps to prevent and punish violations."--Back cover.
