The Venezuelan Government denies massacre, but indigenous organizations want more detailed investigations

[9/4/2012 13:30]

The Entourage of the Venezuelan Government flies over location of alleged massacre of Yanomami and says have not found evidence

Yesterday (3), ISA published note based on information from Venezuelan sources stating that general Zambrano, who commands the 52nd jungle Infantry Brigade and guarnicação of Puerto Ayacucho, declared at local radio stations that still had not arrived to the site of the alleged massacre. Today (4), ISA had access to the recording of the interview of general radio Shamánica of Puerto Ayacucho and found that unlike published yesterday, Zambrano said the overflight not confirmed the news of the massacre.

“So were [the Committee] to Irotatheri where supposedly occurred the massacre and cannot land the helicopter and then we downloaded a few officers. What were were kids playing and doing their activities. There is nothing, “said the general.

Zambrano also said that a team follows by land from the community of Hokomawe to investigate in detail. This information he also gave to the Reuters agency.

Meanwhile, Venezuelan Amazonian indigenous organizations comprising the Coiam, released this Monday (3) new release reiterating the need for continued investigations until they reach the site of the alleged massacre and clarify the facts. In the document, the Coiam recognizes the efforts of the Venezuelan State institutions, but asks that the investigations have continuity until the full clarification of the complaints.

For now, the information is still incomplete and mis-matched.
