Chile Says One of Its Diplomats Shot by Robbers in Venezuela

SANTIAGO – Chile’s consul in the Venezuelan capital received a gunshot wound during a brief abduction last week, the government said Tuesday.

According to a Chilean Foreign Ministry communique, Juan Carlos Fernandez was the victim of an assault as he was leaving a hotel, and he was held by his captors for two hours, during which he sustained a bullet wound, was beaten and threatened.

Afterwards, he was left on a street and then taken to a hospital, where he was treated for his wounds and released on Sunday.

Since then, Fernandez has been recuperating at home and following his doctors’ orders to rest for three weeks, the text of the statement said.

“Our Embassy in Venezuela quickly informed the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry of this deed, expressing the concern of the Chilean government over this violent incident, and it has requested the complete clarification of the event, along with the ... punishment of those responsible,” the communique said.
