The General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS) this Wednesday expressed “support” for the United Nations report on crimes against humanity in Venezuela, while calling for “accountability”.
In a statement, the OAS stated that the related findings and recommendations of the United Nations are “in line” with the content of a report published by the organization in 2018.
In this context, the OAS report also mentions the chain of command for these crimes, 11 officers for their direct political responsibility and another 146 subordinates for the execution of orders. On the basis of this report, six states that are part of the Rome Statute referred the Venezuela case to the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court and requested an investigation on September 26, 2018, the OAS pointed out.
In addition, the agency has insisted that the United Nations recommendations be in line with other work on Venezuela issued by then United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Raad al Hussein, on June 22, 2018.
