The case of Venezuelan Judge Maria Lourdes Afiuni, in custody for almost three years amid international condemnation of her imprisonment, took an unexpected turn with the publication of a book in which she says she was raped in prison.
Arrested in December 2009 after the flight abroad of a businessman charged with various crimes, an occurrence that led Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to denounce her, Afiuni reported that she was raped in a Caracas jail.
She became pregnant after the assault and underwent an abortion behind bars, Afiuni told the book's author, Francisco Olivares.
In the first public reaction from the government, the minister for women's affairs, Nancy Perez, said she had received no complaint about the alleged rape, but said that if there are guilty parties they will be punished.
Afiuni, now 46, was moved from prison to house arrest in February 2010.
"We're upset - I don't know what to say. In the family we didn't know anything like that happened, on top of all the other monstrosities inflicted on her," the judge's elder brother, Nelson Afiuni, told Efe Friday after learning of the revelation.
Afiuni's lawyer, Jose Graterol, told Efe Friday that he considers Chavez "guilty of what happened" to Afiuni in prison.
The assault was perpetrated by prison employees that Afiuni has "perfectly identified," the lawyer said.
The prosecution of the judge has been at a standstill since April 2011 due to Afiuni's decision to boycott court hearings.
Chavez said in December 2009 that Afiuni was a criminal who had allied attorneys and court employees to enable the escape of indicted banker Eligio Cedeño.
The president said then that Afiuni should have to serve the maximum sentence, which in Venezuela is 30 years.
International organizations including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have requested the judge's release, alleging undue political interference. EFE

UN and President Chávez aware in advance of Afiuni's situation
Defense attorney José Amalio Graterol advises the Venezuelan government to perform its obligations

"The (Venezuelan) government knew it; it did not anticipate that the crime would be made public; women do not feel like making it known, but Afiuni plucked up courage and revealed it."

Such were the words uttered by José Amalio Graterol, the attorney of Judge María Lourdes Afiuni. The lawyer told private news TV channel Globovisión that both the Venezuelan government and the United Nations (UN) were keenly aware that Afiuni had been sexually abused early in her arrest.

Afiuni was behind bars at the Women's Guidance National Institute (INOF). "There is evidence of the abuse, certified when she left the INOF in February 2011, including signs of torture," the lawyer spelled out, as posted on Globovisión website.

The whole team of defense attorneys, in agreement with the psychiatrists that saw Afiuni, resolved at that time not to release such abuses. To Graterol's mind, this would have meant "a second assault."

Graterol explained that right now, since Venezuela became a member of the UN Council on Human Rights, the government should abide by the UN resolutions.

Afiuni is next to turn three years imprisoned. Her ordeal came to light upon the release of "Afiuni, la presa del Comandante" (Afiuni The Commander's Prisoner). The book was penned by journalist Francisco Olivares, the head of Dossier, the section of investigative journalism at daily newspaper El Universal.

Op 10 december wordt het precies 3 jaar geleden dat rechter Maria Afiuni werd gearresteerd nadat zij de voorlopige hechtenis van zakenman Eligio Cedeño* had geschorst. Deze zakenman werd verdacht van witwaspraktijken en zat op dat moment al meer dan 2 jaar in voorarrest. De maximaal toegestane periode volgens de Venezolaanse wet bedroeg 2 jaar. Cedeño ontvluchtte meteen die dag het land. Onmiddellijk sprak President Chavez publiekelijk zijn ongenoegen uit over de beslissing en beschuldigde Afiuni van corruptie: zij zou Cedeño hebben geholpen bij de vlucht. Afiuni werd diezelfde dag nog gearresteerd. De beslissing van Afiuni was conform het Venezuelaanse en het internationale recht. Toch zat zij vanaf 10 december 2009 tot en met januari 2011 in een vrouwengevangenis gedetineerd. Sinds februari 2011 ondergaat zij huisarrest onder strenge condities.

*Eligio Cedeño heeft een relatie gehad met de dochter van Chavez, volgens geruchten is María G. Chavez door Cedeño keihard gedumpt, iets wat papa de dictator niet zo leuk vond!!

Hallo Prikkers,
Even voor alle duidelijkheid met wie heeft ze niet geprobeerd een relatie aan te knopen?

Hier een deel van het verhaal:
Esta es la verdadera y relativamente corta y que no es nada corta historia del "Caso Jueza Affiuni": La hija de Chavez Maria Gabriela Chavez , mantenía una relación de amante de tanto con Eligio cedeño como con Gustavo Arraiz los cuales dirigían el Consorcio MICROSTAR. Maria Gabriela Chavez consiguio para ellos 27 millones de dolares aproximadamente de CADIVI, como si fuera arroz , ella misma entregaba los dolares, ella adicionalmente a esto le pidio a Eligio Cedeño que abandonara a su esposa para que viviera y se casara con ella, y tremenda sorpresa se llevo cuando Eligio Cedeño le dijo que no, que si estaba loca pues al parecer Maria Gabriela no poseía una muy buena reputación.
Ante la indignación de la "NIÑA", es cuando le manifiesta a su padre el sancocho en donde estaba ella metida, adicionalmente del video el cual grabaron de ella y el cual por supuesto ella no desea que salga a la luz publica, aunque se dice que ya estaría circulando en el extranjero. Y es aquí cuando ella por medio de su padre manda a apresar a estos dos ciudadanos por "obtención fraudulenta de divisas y contrabando en la modalidad de simulación de importaciones". Después de que apresaron a estos ciudadanos el otro se fugo a Panamá y lo capturan, es cuando la Jueza Affiuni, actuando dentro de la Ley decreta libertad bajo régimen de presentación a uno de estos ciudadanos que tenía 2 años y 10 meses sin un juicio y la Jueza abriría un Juicio por corrupción pero por supuesto que saldría salpicada Maria Gabriela Chávez y Hugo Chávez ambos, la primera por participar y el segundo por saber lo que pasaba y no decir nada, y es cuando ella le pide a su padre que a alguien había que castigar y lamentablemente esa fue Maria Lourdes Affiuni para la cual Maria Gabriela pidió 30 años de prisión con tal de que no se ventile ni salga a la luz publica el videíto de ella.

Groetjes Claco
