UN Fact-Finding Mission publishes report detailing crimes against humanity

The UN Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Venezuela has published a report detailing the participation of state agents, including President Maduro, in the repression of dissent. While the Mission has been unable to enter Venezuela, the report was drafted with information gathered from interviews with victims, families and other stakeholders. The Mission draws attention to the absence of the rule of law in the country and calls upon authorities to investigate and prosecute all human rights violations.
