The Organization of American States (OAS) Inter American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) removed Tuesday Venezuelan Special Rapporteur on Migrant Workers and Their Families Freddy Gutiérrez because his incumbency was not respected any more.

However, the official was not removed from the organization.

"Due to serious previous events, we, the remaining members of the Commission have lost the confidence vested in Commissioner Freddy Gutiérrez Trejo to perform his duties as rapporteur," IACHR members said in a resolution after listening to the Venezuelan.

The Commission members noted that Gutiérrez "had staged multiple public demonstrations on the functions and mandate of the Commission in matters and cases coming from his country of origin," AFP quoted.

Over the last few years, the Venezuelan government and IACHR have had quite a few clashes.

Gutiérrez was accused also of having "abused repeatedly of his position as Rapporteur to attack the institutional integrity and impartiality of IACHR and its members, and give false testimony on pending matters and cases before the Commission."

Therefore, the IACHR members replaced him "in his functions and duties" as Special Rapporteur on Migrant Workers and Their Families, and as Rapporteur for Salvador, Panama and Uruguay.

Interview


"I'm worried at seeing the opposition blending in Chávezism"

INTERVIEW Pedro Pablo Fernández faces the tough task of the children of his kind: breaking with the label according to which he is identified as "Eduardo Fernández's son." His categorical, sound style in contrast with his father's calm, smiling mood has helped him frame his own name, in spite of father and son having similar standpoints. A deputy to the Venezuelan National Assembly, an attorney-at-law majoring in economy from the University of Colorado and holder of a Master Degree in Public Policies from Georgetown University, his solitary political performance is nevertheless controversial, particularly after his speech at the parliament during the election of its board, last January.
