The Venezuelan government rebutted on Thursday a number of recommendations from the United Nations Human Rights Council, including the release of political prisoners or the visit of UN experts to assess the situation on site.
In a paper recently released and discussed at the headquarters, the UN Council elaborated on a corpus of 274 recommendations made last November; rejected expressly 53 and “took note” of other 28, a term considered by the UN as “refusal.”
In a document, the Venezuelan government labeled all the suggestions as “biased, confounding, politically wicked, prepared on false grounds, contrary to the spirit of cooperation and respect.”
The UN paper was the result of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), an examination on human rights that should be passed by all UN Member States.
