In a press conference, Venezuelan Attorney General Saab revealed conclusions of both the autopsy and the investigation, which continue to review the case.

Attorney General of Venezuela William Saab verified Wednesday through a sample of scientific evidence and medical expertise that in the death of Metropolitan Councilman Fernando Alban, there was no evidence of previous abuse, and that his death was due to multiple fractures after the fall, thus confirming suicide.

In a press conference, Saab revealed conclusions of both the autopsy and the investigation, which continue to review the case and have so far found so far there was no third party participation in the death of the politician from the party Primero de Justicia.

Also, the Attorney General said that the medical report had indicated that the cause of death of the politician was due to multiple fractures in various areas of the body, such as head, chest and legs and arms, a product of the fall.

In addition, revealed that at the time of the impact, Albán was still alive, therefore the accusations made by sectors of the opposition about a possible murder by being thrown out of the building are dismissed.

In this regard, William Saab requested respect for the situation and invited those who make these statements to present evidence to the Office of the Prosecutor. "It is preferable to keep silence and respect this fact."

The official further criticized those who "take advantage of the death of a citizen to seek an advantage that aims to harm democratic institutions, the peace of the Republic and national stability," ensuring that the case will be thoroughly investigated objectively, and that should other possible elements to appear, it will be communicated to the public.
