The Sakharov prize for Freedom of thought, which awards people and organizations which have defended Human Rights and fundamental freedoms, has been attributed to the Democratic Opposition in Venezuela.
This annoucement, made by the President of the European Parliament – Antonio Tajani – and the political groups leaders, aims to show the European support to Venezuelan National Assembly and peoples. Indeed, Venezuela has been in a political crisis for the last seven years.
The prize, in the form of a certificate and 50 000 euro, will be awarded during a ceremony, which will take place on 13th December 2017 at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
