NEW DELHI.- Twenty tour members of the Indian Parliament demanded the government of the United States try Luis Posada Carriles or extradite him to Venezuela to be judged by the Venezuelan justice system.

In letters addresses to Secretary of Sate Condoleezza Rice and the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the Indian parliamentarians expressed their indignation for the decision under the Bush administration to withdraw charges against the notorious international terrorist.

The signatory of the letters remind Condoleezza Rice and Nancy Pelosi that Posada is a confessed murderer of citizens from several countries, that he has debts with Venezuelan justice for his involvement in the bombing of a Cuban airliner in October 1976 in which 73 innocent people were killed, among other acts of terrorism.

The parliamentarians expressed their concern for Posada Carriles's release and said that they have added their voices and votes to the resolution signed by the state members of the Non-Aligned Movement, pointing out the double-standards of the government of the United states in its supposed war on terrorism. The legislators demanded justice for the dreadful crimes Posada has committed and to put a stop to his impunity.
