Lima Group Statement

Friday 18 October 2019
Information for the Press N°: 
403/19

The governments of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela, members of the Lima Group, deeply deplore the fact that the illegitimate and dictatorial regime of Nicolás Maduro, which is responsible for serious human rights violations, should have been elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council for the period 2020-2022.

We renew our firm decision to make our best efforts to advance the Human Rights Council’s investigation into the systematic violations of human rights in Venezuela so that those responsible for these criminal acts are held accountable.

Finally, we reiterate our unwavering commitment to continue promoting, together with the international community, the restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Venezuela.
