National Assembly deputy Delsa Solórzano gave a positive assessment of the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor’s statements on Venezuela, in which she said a decision may be reached later this year.
In this regard, Solórzano said that “we are sure that it will be so, due to the enormous amount of evidence before the ICC.”
“This is undoubtedly good news for the country and for every victim of human rights violations, who must know that the crimes of which we have been victims will not go unpunished and that the world today has its eyes on us,” the parliamentarian said.
On the other hand, she highlighted the work of human rights activists and officials, “to be truly efficient, it must also be timely. The possibility of saving lives depends on it. With mid-2020 only, it is not enough to point out that this year will surely bring results.”
In this sense, the congresswoman for Encuentro Ciudadano urged the need for a response as soon as possible “because every day that passes in Venezuela, one more citizen dies because of the laziness of the usurper regime or the serious violation of human rights. I reiterate, acting quickly has the effect of saving lives or avoiding imprisonment for political reasons.”
In addition, she made herself available to send any information needed by this court of justice. “From the National Assembly and the Special Commission for Justice and Peace, we remain at the disposal of the ICC to continue sending the information they require, so that a quick and timely decision can be reached”.
“The defense of human rights does not distinguish between political colors, race or social condition, and it is an obligation of those of us who dedicate ourselves to their defense and protection to watch over their compliance and the sanctioning of those responsible,” she concluded.
