(Nueva York, 4 de febrero de 2020) – Residentes del estado Bolívar, al sur de Venezuela, son víctimas de amputaciones y otros abusos atroces cometidos por grupos armados que controlan minas de oro, incluyendo organizaciones venezolanas conocidas como “sindicatos” y grupos armados colombianos con presencia en la zona, señaló hoy Human Rights Watch. Los grupos armados parecen actuar generalmente con la aquiescencia del gobierno y, en algunos casos, con su participación, para mantener un férreo control de las poblaciones locales.
