Venezuela repudiates silence of High Commissioner for Human Rights before repression in Chile
The Bolivarian Government of Venezuela repudiates the silence of the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations Organizations (UN), Michelle Bachelet, before the repressive acts of police and military forces against the Chilean people.
The Executive Vice-president of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, through her account on the social network Twitter @DrodriguezVen, condemned that there is no pronouncement from the specialized agency of the United Nations system dedicated to promoting and protecting human rights in the world.

The message was accompanied with images that show the disproportionate use of force against demonstrations, which have left a balance of 182 wounded and 308 detained.
To the repression of the security forces, the curfew decree is added and it will be executed between the 22:00 hours of this Saturday until 07:00 of this Sunday, with the possibility of extending.
This is the first time curfew is decreed in Chile after the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.
