UN ACCUSES MADURO GOVERNMENT OF “CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY”


19/09/2020




İrem UZUN -TDO- The government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has committed systematic human rights violations including killings and torture amounting to crimes against humanity, United Nations investigators said in a report.

In a report published on Wednesday, the panel of experts said that they had found evidence that state actors including President Nicolas Maduro had ordered or contributed to crimes including extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, arbitrary detentions and torture.  The report highlighted cases of torture and killings allegedly carried out by security forces who used techniques like electric shocks, genital mutilation and asphyxiation.  The findings, based on nearly 3,000 cases that were investigated or examined, concluded that Maduro and his defense and interior ministers were aware of crimes committed by security forces and intelligence agencies. 

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the report "extraordinary" during a phone briefing with reporters.  "I hope it will have an impact on any government that is thinking about its policy toward the Maduro regime," Pompeo said. The United States, along with dozens of other countries, recognizes opposition politician Juan Guaido as Venezuela's legitimate interim leader.
