The International Criminal Court (ICC) at The Hague acknowledged on Wednesday receipt of a complaint lodged by Colombian and Chilean senators against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, on charges of torture and segregation.
“As with any received notice, it will be analyzed as appropriate, in accordance with the ICC Statute,” the ICC Office of the Prosecutor said, Efe reported.
The ICC added that as soon as a decision is taken, they would notify it to Iván Duque, Senator for the Colombian opposition Centro Democrático party, including the rationale for the resolution.
The 56-page document is signed by 76 senators of Colombia and 70 senators of Chile; it is founded on presumed crimes committed by Maduro’s government during nationwide anti-government protests for more than 100 days and with a death toll of over 90 so far.
