Caracas - The Venezuelan Human Rights Network regretted the discriminatory content of the report of the high commissioner of the United Nations Organization, Michelle Bachelet.
In a letter sent by the Foreign Ministry in its website, non-government organizations that signed the letter deeply regretted being 'excluded, made invisible and discriminated against' in the document prepared by the office of the Chilean president.
'We note that you have decided not to include any of the information we have provided to your Office on the situation of human rights in our country, particularly on collective cases of violation of human rights, their causes and those responsible,' they indicated.
According to the Network, these data were provided by the aforementioned organizations by mail, directly to the technical team present in the country from March 11 to 22, and personally to Bachelet during a brief meeting held on June 21 last in Caracas.
It meant that the report became 'discretional, privileged and biased selection' of information provided by organizations biased in the national political spectrum, subordinated to interests unrelated to human rights and made up of activists and representatives of parties opposed to the Government of Nicolás Maduro.
The Venezuelan Human Rights Network called for expanding and democratizing the sources of information about the situation in the South American country.
He also criticized the fact that the document prepared by the office of the high commissioner had excluded any reference to the attempted coup d'état executed on April 30, 2019, which constituted 'an attack on democracy and human rights.'
The organization also expressed concern that Bachelet's report did not address the impact on the level of life, health and nutrition of the 47 coercive measures and the thousands of de facto acts applied against Venezuela since 2014 by the United States, Canada and the European Union.
In this regard, he recalled the criteria of the United Nations, according to which unilateral sanctions generate serious violations of the human rights of countries that are victims of such actions, contrary to International Public Rights, as well as the State's capacity to guarantee them.
On Thursday, Venezuela presented a report with 70 observations to the version released by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, on these guarantees in the country.
Caracas described as selective and openly biased the report presented by the agency on the true situation in the nation, which contradicts the principles for the treatment of human rights issues of the Vienna Declaration and Program of Action.
