On Tuesday, the Argentine Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Germán Garavano, presented in The Hague the document prepared with testimonies of Venezuelans based in Argentina, who were victims or witnesses of crimes committed by officials of the Chavez regime.
“The defense of human rights has no borders. Faced with heinous crimes, which have been recognized by the UN High Commissioner, Michelle Bachelet, one cannot be neutral, because neutrality is complicity. For this reason, we Venezuelans are grateful for the firm commitment of the people and the Argentine Government for democracy and freedom, and that is demonstrated again today with this complaint before the International Criminal Court, which will be an push for justice and so that these violations not go unpunished”, said Ambassador Elisa Trotta.
Between July 24th and August 22nd, the Argentine Government authorized an office and a telephone line so that Venezuelans could present their testimonies of the crimes suffered under Maduro’s regime, with the aim of preparing this report that was presented to the International Criminal Court.
