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."
Three Venezuelans and five Trinidadians will stand trial on January 26 under the suspicion of being involved in alleged Muslim terrorist activities in Venezuela. After nine months in prison, the defendants will appear in court to face charges of terrorism brought against them by the Attorney General Office.
