National Government rejects biased OHCHR report on Venezuela
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela expresses its firm rejection of the content, conclusions and recommendations of the recent report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in relation to the functioning of the Justice System of the country and the National Strategic Development Zone of the Orinoco Mining Arch.
This biased report, prepared on the basis of a questioned Human Rights Council resolution, is a palpable evidence of the doble standards, manipulation and shameful use of international political mechanisms by a small group of countries with serious records of human rights violations and manifestly hostile political positions towards Venezuela.
Precisely yesterday, the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, denounced communicational and interfering propaganda campaign announced by Elliot Abrams, that obscure character who serves as representative of Washington for Venezuelan affairs. The satellite governments of the United States are openly evident in articulating their positions and actions in international forums as part of the political and media aggression against Venezuela.
The Human Rights Council, like no international actor, has no legal power or mandate to attempt to evaluate the constitutional functioning of the public authorities and the development of the economy sectors in Venezuela.
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reaffirms its willingness to continue cooperating with the Human Rights Council, its special mechanisms and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, provided that these instances avoid being politically instrumentalized against sovereign and independent States.
