Officials met at the MP’s headquarters at the General Directorate for the Defense of Human Rights, with the committee representing the family of Professor Carlos Lanz, and held conversations with the prosecutors who are handling the case.
The efforts, investigations, and actions carried out by the MP amount to more than 100 criminal investigative actions with the participation of law enforcement agencies such as Sebin, DGCIM, CICPC and CPNB.
Attorney General Saab recalled that Lanz’s disappearance dates from August 8, 2020, “when he was seen for the last time at his residence, from which he left voluntarily, located in Maracay Edo Aragua.”
Saab also stated that the Public Ministry created, from the very day of the unfortunate event, working groups with all the acting agencies in order to review the lines of investigation and clarify the facts. Interpol maintains the Yellow Notice active for the location of Professor Carlos Lanz in any of the 194 member countries of the International Criminal Police Organization.
Finally, the Attorney General added that “no hypothesis has been ruled out in this unfortunate event and reiterates the call to the entire community to join efforts in locating Professor Carlos Lanz,” thus confirming the will of all Venezuelan authorities to work and act to clarify this case.
