Venezuela: The Party of the European Left strongly condemns the assassination of Robert Serra and María Herrera
The Party of the European Left (EL) expresses its firmest condemnation after the heinous murder of Robert Serra and his companion María Herrera. Serra was a member of the National Assembly for the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) and its Young Branch. This crime is in the context of harassment that suffers the constitutional government of President Nicolás Maduro.
EL also expresses its deep concern at the evidence that shows the involvement of international paramilitary groups that operate with the complicity and support of the most extremist sectors of the Venezuelan right in their quest to destabilize the democratic government of Venezuela.
EL shares the grief of the family of Roberto Serra and Maria Herrera and expresses its full solidarity with the PSUV and the Venezuelan left that is struggling for democracy and justice.
