1. Unifies through the TIAR, a unit of investigation, intelligence and persecution of all the issues that have to do with money laundering, corruption, drug trafficking and violation of human rights.
2. This resolution passed today with 16 votes becomes, not an option for the countries, it becomes an obligation for all countries in the region.
3. Thirdly, it was declared that the consultative body will be in permanent session which implies a gradual process of pressure increase that the TIAR treaty implies.
“For us it is a very important support as Venezuelans, it means, in a concrete way, real mechanisms at this moment, an open process and pressure so that all those who are frontmen, family members and hierarchs of the regime know that a measure of justice is opened from Canada to Argentina for the application of concrete actions”, explained the commissioner.
Borges also explained that Venezuela’s crisis is due to Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship. “We are talking about the clear links that exist between Nicolás Maduro, his associates, organized crime and the protection of narcoterrorists and armed paramilitary groups, as is the case of the ELN”, he explained.
Similarly, the Venezuelan representative recalled that the regime maintains military delegations from Russia, Iran, China and Cuba, which are responsible for defending tyranny and oppressing the Venezuelan people fighting for democracy.
“As if that weren’t enough, in Venezuela there has been a total destruction of the rule of law. There is no justice, there is no constitution, there is no law. we live under a process of simply the law of the thug”, said Borges.
