Similarly, El Aissami informed that the recently created commission would go, together with the Ombudswoman Gabriela Ramirez, down to the main courtyard of the prison to verify the health condition of 951 prisoners who still remain at El Rodeo I.

“This is for you to see and get acquainted with the effort we have made, as well as the transparency and the way we have worked to protect the life of inmates.”

Mariangela Diaz, member of the commission of families, informed that since next Monday Jun. 20 they will begin, together with authorities, visiting the centers where inmates where relocated.
