Following the latest statements by the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Fatou Bensouda, it is proven that the regime’s intention was exactly what the President of the party ‘Encuentro Ciudadano’, Delsa Solórzano had been denouncing for several weeks.
Ms. Bensouda reported that her office is very close to deciding whether the Venezuelan case goes to the next phase with the opening of a formal investigation. “Most of the criteria for completing the preliminary examination have been met.”
Delsa Solórzano explained, the first week of May, that the intention of the regime’s prosecutor, when acknowledging the murder of councilor Fernando Albán, was to evade international justice and disguise the crimes against humanity that the dictatorship constantly commits.
“Tarek has the clear intention to evade the jurisdiction of the ICC @IntlCrimCourt, making them believe that justice is being done in Venezuela. He also pointed out that these are not crimes against humanity but violations of human rights,” said the tweet published by the President of the Special Commission for Justice and Peace of the National Assembly, last month.
Ms. Solórzano explained at that time that, “Human rights violations are not necessarily the jurisdiction of the ICC, only crimes against humanity are. @IntlCrimCourt also acts when it is impossible to do justice in the country where the events were committed.” She also clarified that international organizations and the world know that justice in Venezuela does not exist, nor is it possible to do justice.
On this occasion, the prosecutor belied the officials of the Chavista regime, such as Tarek William Saab, who have accused the ICC of not cooperating with the Venezuelan State and denying it the right to a defense.
“With all due respect, this is incorrect. My office has extensively engaged with Venezuela even with the highest authorities,” Bensouda refuted.
Deputy Solórzano has recently urged the Court to continue with the process and advance to “the procedural stage that leads to prosecuting in the ICC those responsible for the crimes we suffer in Venezuela.” This moment seems to be near and the voice of Solórzano, in addition to the conglomerate of evidence consigned before the court, made possible this statement by the prosecutor that has little time left before she leaves office.
