Venezuela's entry into UN Human Rights Council is a "gibe," NGO says
Patricia Andrade, the director of Venezuela Awareness, maintained in a press release that Venezuela will use its new status "to attack the countries regarded as its enemies"
The human rights advocate based in Miami labeled as "gibe" the election of Venezuela. "In order to take on the position to which it was elected today (Monday), Venezuela should be stricter in terms of respect of human rights. Therefore, today's election can be just seen as a gibe. Any presentation to be made by Venezuela in its incumbency at the UN Human Rights Council is not at all trustworthy."
More than USD 3.5 million of Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) money were lost in their way to the Dominican Republic. Some Venezuelans are among the 5,000 victims of the bank's collapse. And not even the entity responsible for overseeing Venezuela's monetary policy was spared.
