The President (E) of the Republic reiterated that Nicolás Maduro’s regime will continue to be repudiated by the international democratic community and that after the publication of the update by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, were confirmed the crimes against humanity committed by the dictatorship.
“To those who still support the dictatorship: the world’s repudiation will only increase and will have consequences for you”, said the president this Tuesday through his personal Twitter account.
Guiaidó reiterated that the High Commissioner’s report shows, once again, that Maduro leads a group of criminals who aim to continue holding hostage and looting Venezuela.
“It ratifies what the democratic forces, NGOs and civil society have denounced and confronted: the manipulation and corruption of the justice system in Venezuela, the systematic violations of human rights and torture by the repressive organs of the dictatorship,” he said.
Likewise, the president recalled that the dictatorship protects and has as allies irregular armed groups such as the ELN and FARC dissidents, in addition to ceding them spaces in the Mining Arc. “We call on the international community to classify this gold as ‘Blood Gold’ to prevent its smuggling and destruction of the Amazon,” he said.
Guaidó assured that the Legitimate Government is working to protect Venezuelans and the country’s wealth: “The only possible solution is the National Emergency Government,” he said.
“Today there is no room for doubt in the world about the characterization of Maduro’s regime and the need for a solution that goes through free presidential elections. The international community is with us in this cause and we will continue to fight until we win,” he added.
Guaidó also reported that the legitimate government signed the Optional Protocol to the United Nations Convention against Torture, which seeks to establish a system of visits by independent international and national bodies to places where people are deprived of their liberty, in order to prevent torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
