For these cases there are eight dead, 71 injured and 170 arrested. The Judiciary Power has received 75 denounces submitted for violent events registered in the last hours in the country

The president of the Supreme Court of Justice, Luisa Estela Morales, confirmed that there will be no impunity for violent acts featuring anti-chavista sectors in recent days in some states, fueled by right-wing political leaders who called on their followers to take the streets disowning the results of the presidential elections of April 14, in which Nicolas Maduro won the presidency of the Republic.

She recalled that in these cases there are eight dead, 71 injured and 170 arrested and the Judiciary Power has received 75 reports of violent acts registered in the last hours in the country.

She said -in addition-, that the judges who were on duty until April 17 will have their journey extend for seven days, because of this series of registered events.

Morales said that so far no political organization has used the appropriate bodies to make a request for a manual count of the votes of the last election, "and it is for an important reason: in Venezuela, since the Constitution of 1999, the manual way was removed from electoral processes in the country. "

"So then, there is no manual counting. People has been deceived by making them believe that there is a manual counting possibility. Processes are not audited by the ballots, but by the system," she said.

The judge identified the people killed in the past two days as Jose Luis Ponce, Jose Luis Reyes, Henry Rangel La Rosa, Enrique Guzman, Ender José Bastardo, Luis Garcia Polanco, Ray David Sanchez, Juan Hernández.
