Name: Joaldy Javier Deyón González
Arbitrarily detained: January 16, 2018
Place of confinement: Ramo Verde
Joaldy Deyón is mechanic by profession and he’s 45 years old. On January 16, 2018, the day after the El Junquito massacre, Minister Néstor Reverol confirmed the arrest of at least six people, allegedly linked to Oscar Pérez. Among them, was Joaldy.
Despite his civil status, his case was presented to a military court on January 19 along with eight other people detained for the same cause. The regime of Nicolás Maduro accuses him of supplying material to Oscar Pérez for his subversive activities.
Almost a year later, Joaldy is still held in the military prison of Ramo Verde. Human rights organizations denounce that political prisoners in the case of Oscar Pérez have been subjected to torture and cruel treatment. Deyón, like all political prisoners, is innocent.
