Venezuelan police & security forces committed ‘arbitrary killings and systemic torture,’ UN fact-finding mission claims

Venezuelan police & security forces committed ‘arbitrary killings and systemic torture,’ UN fact-finding mission claims

rt - 1 week ago

A UN probe alleges that Venezuelan police and security forces carried out extrajudicial executions and otherwise massively violated human rights. Caracas argued the UN action against it was part of a hostile US-led campaign.

The investigation found “reasonable grounds to believe that Venezuelan authorities and security forces have since 2014 planned and executed serious human rights violations,” the mission’s chief, Marta Valinas, stated. 

Valinas noted that some of the recorded crimes were “arbitrary killings and the systematic use of torture,” which amounts to crimes against humanity. She said that President Nicolas Maduro and other high-ranking officials, including the ministers of interior and defense, were aware of the crimes.

The mission said that among the cases it examined were 16 cases of police and military operations resulting in 53 extrajudicial executions, as well as reviewed additional incidents involving 5,094 killings by police and security forces.

UN investigators were blocked from entering Venezuela after the country’s diplomats said the UN action against Caracas was part of a hostile US-led campaign. Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza had previously slammed the UN for doing “little or nothing” to end the economic blockade imposed by Washington, which Caracas views as “economic aggression.” Venezuelan officials repeatedly accused the White House of plotting to overthrow the current government.

Washington imposed several rounds of sanctions against Venezuela. Arreaza slammed the restrictive measures as “economic terrorism” that hurts ordinary people.
