  • Mourners of the municipal lawmaker Fernando Alban shout slogans in front of riot police members standing outside the headquarters of Bolivarian National Intelligence Service in Caracas Venezuela

Alban, 56, was taken into custody Friday at Caracas' worldwide airport upon arriving from NY, according to his lawyer.

In a Twitter post on Monday, Reverol said that while in the waiting room on the 10th floor of the headquarters of state intelligence agency SEBIN, Alban had jumped from the window to his death.

A spokeswoman for the United Nations rights office, Ravina Shamdasani, told reporters the Caracas government had "an obligation to ensure (Alban's) safety, personal integrity and dignity".

The authorities later blamed Venezuela's opposition and also Colombia for the attack.

In a statement, the party said their member "was murdered at the hands of the regime of Nicolas Maduro".

The official suicide claim drew swift denials from opposition leaders close to Fernando Alban and dozens of his supporters gathered outside the office of Venezuela's intelligence service yelling "Maduro killer!" contending that he had been murdered.

"There's no doubt this was an assassination", Borges said in a video from exile in neighbouring Colombia. "The only thing left for this government is torture, violence and destruction".

While Venezuelans previous year watched as dozens of youth were killed in violent street battles with security forces, the death of activists while in the government's custody is a fate more associated with the far deadlier dictatorships that dominated much of South America in the 1970s.

The French foreign ministry on Thursday reissued an appeal for the liberation of all political prisoners in Venezuela and respect for basic rights.

The government has denied that it is detaining people as political prisoners and has said that they were fairly jailed.

Municipal lawmaker Fernando Alban, 56, was jailed last Friday for alleged involvement in the explosion of two drones during a military parade in August that was led by President Nicolas Maduro, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said. He then threw himself from the 10th floor of the building, the attorney general said.

"We do indeed call for a transparent, independent investigation to clarify the circumstances of his death", she said.

Shamdasani said the Venezuelan state was responsible for ensuring Alban's safety while he was in custody.

Reacting to the news, US Senator Bob Corker tweeted that the Venezuelan government should explain how the death had been allowed to happen.

One of Alban's lawyers, Joel Garcia, told reporters that an autopsy conducted at the national morgue showed signs of severe trauma to the skull, chest, and hips as well as indications of a fall.

Venezuelan lawmaker Fernando Alban has died while in detention, the government said Monday, although the reasons for his death remain contested. Garcia said authorities can not determine that a death is a suicide without an investigation and he would ask to be present at the autopsy.
