UN acknowledges impact of US sanctions against Venezuela

Geneva, Switzerland, Jul 22 (Prensa Latina) The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) acknowledged today the impact on the Venezuelan people of the economic sanctions imposed by the United States on this nation.

This UN body issued on Wednesday its A/HRC/44/20 report entitled: ‘Outcomes of the investigation into allegations of possible human right violations to life, liberty, and physical and moral integrity in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.’

Nevertheless, the Venezuelan authorities questioned this document and argued that it only reflects inconsistently alleged situations in terms of human rights that are not real.

The Venezuelan State’s objections indicate that, despite the presence in this South American country of a special OHCHR commission, this body omitted in its recent report many of the data submitted in due course by the authorities of the different powers.

Even then, the Bolivarian government highlighted the substantial differences of this document with respect to the previous ones submitted by the same office.

This time, the report explains progress of the cooperation and technical assistance relations between the OHCHR and the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, reinforced by the Letter of Understanding signed on September 20, 2019 by the two parties.

The Venezuelan authorities acknowledged that the new report has a timid, but remarkable intention in deepening the UN’s knowledge of the details and exceptionalities of the economic, political and social situation in Venezuela, which have traditionally been disclosed to the world in a biased way and without rigor.
