The Venezuelan Ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS), Gustavo Tarre Briceño, expressed his gratitude to Colombia on behalf of the President in charge of the Republic, Juan Guaidó, “for allowing the work of the IACHR to be done on Venezuela from the border.”
“Tomorrow the IACHR will travel to Cúcuta so that the effort to review what is happening on human rights issues in Venezuela can become a reality. The fact that it could not enter the country was to be expected,” reported Tarre.
The Venezuelan representative took the opportunity to clarify that “the government of Panama had nothing to do with the impediment of the CIDH’s visit to Venezuela, as did the airline. Rather, the Panamanian government did everything possible to make this visit happen, but it was not successful,” recalling the sanction imposed by the Maduro regime on the airline “Copa” after Juan Guaidó returned from his first international tour of Venezuela with this commercial line.
Tarre warned the media of possible arrests of NGO representatives in the country’s interior as they travel to the border.
“We want the media to be alert because there may be arrests,” he said.
