BBC Mundo’s Daniel Pardo offers a chronicle of the funeral held last Friday for Juan Montoya, one of the three people killed by gunfire on Wednesday’s protest in Caracas.
Montoya was a member of both the Libertador municipal police and a major player inside the colectivos, the government-supporting armed groups. Juancho (as he was known) believed that “violence is a tool”.
But there are many questions about the circumstances of his death, as his brother Jhony told newspaper Ultimas Noticias. UN’s investigation unit did a special report about what really happened that afternoon.
