Three British Journalists Arrested by Venezuela Secret Police

By Carlos Camacho

CARACAS -- Three British TV journalists working for Britain’s Independent Television News network were arrested in oil-rich Zulia state, Western Venezuela, as they were trying to exit the troubled Latin America country for Colombia after a three day stay, the SNTP local journalists union reported Friday morning.

SNTP said the takedown took place at 10:20 local time Friday morning.

Laura Saravia, who reportedly holds dual British-Argentinian citizenships and Britons Barney Green and Dan Rivers were arrested by the National Guard at the Paraguachon border crossing in Zulia as they tried to leave for Colombia and posteriorly remanded to the custody of SEBIN, the domestic intelligence service.

The trio is now in Maracaibo, the capital of Zulia state. They have not been allowed consular or legal help, according to CNP, the national journalists’ college.

Three Venezuelans working for the ITN crew have also been detained.

As of this writing, none of the arrested have been officially charged. ITN is famous for producing video reportage and documentary from conflict zones as well as from underdeveloped, underprivileged areas of the planet.
