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.

"He (López) knew it (information about his possible assassination), too. Why did he turn himself in? He and his family were aware of that," said the legislator in an interview with daily newspaper El Universal.
