The diplomatic representation of Liechtenstein demanded this Wednesday before the UN Human Rights Council that the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro allow the entrance to Venezuela of UN commissions and the International Criminal Court (ICC), so that they may carry out in an exhaustive manner the investigations on crimes against Humanity.
“The Mission has found a wide range of human rights violations committed in Venezuela since 2014, including extrajudicial executions by the army, arbitrary detentions, torture, rape and other forms of sexual violence and other inhuman and degrading treatment. Unfortunately, the list continues to a great extent, but the truth is that these denounced human rights violations were committed by state actors,” afirmend the diplomatic representation during the debate of the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
The Government of Liechtenstein mayor concern is not that Maduro’s regime has violated basic democratic rights, but that it has given the military police and security forces impunity for human rights violations and crimes.
“We urge Venezuela to follow the recommendations listed in the report, conducting investigations in an impartial and transparent manner is a prerequisite to ensure accountability of all human rights violations and abuses,” he said.
Liechtenstein closed its intervention by urging the dictatorship to “fully cooperate with the fact-finding mission by granting full and unhindered access to the country as well as to the ICC,” he concluded.
