Lorent Saleh, a student leader who was imprisoned for four years in Venezuela for peacefully protesting the Maduro regime said he said political prisoners being crucified.
â€œI saw men on their knees so they could be beaten. And the worst â€“ the most terrible and striking â€“ I saw men not do anything before the suffering of other men,â€ he explained. â€œI have seen prisoners hanging for three days on a rail. Crucified. And other prisoners pass him by, as if nothing.â€
â€œI have seen prisoners offer to abuse other prisoners, thinking that they would thus avoid being abused themselves, and of course that didnâ€™t happen. They were abused too, and even moreso,â€ Saleh continued. â€œBecause nobody, not even the guards, trusted them.â€
â€œSome get used to beating, submitting [prisoners to their will], torturing, but the worst is that others get used to being beaten, submitted, tortured,â€ he concluded.
