This petition had 7,352 supporters

Venezuelan violinist Wuilly Arteaga , 23, was unlawfully detained in Caracas by  Dictator Nicolas Maduro's regime on July 27th. The GNB and Sebin used his instrument to beat him so severely that he lost his hearing on his right ear. His hair was set on fire and his legs were also burnt.  He hasn't been allowed to change his clothes since his detainment. There has been no trial and his only alleged 'crime' to play the violin during oposition led protests.

Despite the fact that he is a civilian he is being kept in a military facility under the control of the infamous National Guard. Political prisoners in Venezuela are subjected to torture and rape.

Just today, the 8th of August 2017,  the ONU has denounced tortures and sistematic use of excessive force in Venezuela.

He is one of 1,389 political prisoners illegally held. Please help us save him. He could be your son, your nephew, your brother or grandson . Don' let him languish in jail.
