The general secretary of the Ferrominera Workers Union was arrested in November.

Crisálida González, sister of the general secretary of the Ferrominera Workers Union, Rubén González, denounced on Monday that her family has been the victim of persecution.

He said he doesn’t know what’s gonna happen to his brother’s case. “At the preliminary hearing, the injunction was maintained. We demand answers.”

For his part, the secretary of Sunep-CVG Organization, Cecilio Pineda, said that more and more trade unionists are persecuted. “In this case Dgcim and Sebin, all these cases were dealt with by the UN commission,” he said.

Last November, a military court in Maturín, in the state of Monagas, ordered the deprivation of liberty against Rubén González, who was charged with attacking the sentinel, insulting the sentinel and insulting the National Armed Force.
