The Bicentennial Union of the Peoples of Chile demanded the immediate and unconditional release of the Venezuelan diplomat, Alex Saab, kidnapped by the government of the United States (U.S.), which it described as a "flagrant violation and absolute disregard for international law and human rights".
"The criminal government of the United States has not been able to explain or demonstrate any crime or irregularity that justifies the detention in a foreign country of a diplomat from another country, let alone the criminal actions of physical and mental torture against the detainee, his family and his freedom," reads a public statement issued on September 15 from the city of Santiago.
This organization, which brings together social movements and important personalities of the southern nation, asked the international organizations responsible for monitoring human rights to make a statement and take the corresponding legal action against the government of Joe Biden.
The Bicentennial Peoples' Union also rejected other illegal actions against the Bolivarian nation, such as the kidnapping of the crew and the confiscation of the Emtrasur company plane in Argentina.
He stressed that the U.S. exercises extraterritorial actions from its courts with the excuse that they are carried out under an alleged mutual cooperation agreement with the government of Alberto Fernandez.
"What agreements these are that attempt against foreign citizens in foreign countries. The flights, secret jails, assassinations of political leaders, kidnappings and coups d'état, in its history of almost two hundred years are unobjectionable samples of an immoral and abusive parallel system (...) as is the case of citizen Alex Saab Morán accused of non-existent crimes", refers the document.
He emphasized that the illegality of this action violates Saab's human rights due to the systematic application of torture by agents of the U.S. government, rights of which that country claims to defend and is obliged to do so as a member of the United Nations (UN). "We want him free, it is his right", the statement said.
