Councilor Fernand Alban's relatives called for an international investigation into his death

Caracas.– A relative of an opposition counselor who was killed a month ago, Fernando Albán on Thursday called on international organizations to investigate the case, in response to accusations that it is not "suicide", as authorities argue.

Fernando Albán "died in state custody (…) and his alleged" suicide "has been verified under unexplained circumstances that fit into concrete scenarios of potentially illegal death," said a statement signed by his widow Meuda Nosím

The family has asked multilateral organizations such as the United Nations and the Organization of American States (OAS) to "intervene and help" to conduct "independent investigations".

Attorney general of the Republic, Tarek William Saab, said that Albany was throwing out of a window in the corridor on the 10th floor of a secret service (Sebin) after asking to go to the bathroom. Previously, the clerk said he drove out of the bathroom window.

"Why the Prosecutor" described his death as "suicide" (…) Why was he later executed? "The family, who refused to receive the autopsy report, asked Saab to ask.

Opposition leaders argued that Albania had been alive by agents to erase evidence of torture during interrogation.

OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro, critic of Nicolás Maduro, President of the Republic, whom he calls the "dictator," considers the case to be "a crime against humanity".

Albania's death came three days after he was arrested and charged with attempting to assassinate two explosives near a platform where Maduro delivered a speech during a Caracas military parade. August 4th
