Venezuelan delegation will participate in 4 public hearings of the IACHR

This Friday, December 2, a Venezuelan delegation will participate in the public hearings of the 159th session of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), based in Panama City.
The Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Council of Venezuela, Larry Devoe, informed that the delegation will participate in four public hearings on issues such as freedom of expression, advances in the Penitentiary System, another one regarding the strategic project of the Orinoco Mining Arc, and a last hearing convened by the Venezuelan State to present the achievements of the Great Mission Housing Venezuela.
“Venezuela assists the hearings in a free and sovereign way to present its advances in these matters and thus continue to ratify the commitment of the Human Rights of all people in our country.”
The information was provided by Larry Devoe, during a forum on Human Rights held at the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences of the University of Panama, a space he used to “demonstrate how our country has advanced in the construction and respect of Human Rights.”
The event was attended by social movements and student groups, who debated Venezuela’s progress in Human Rights and the ways to counteract the media campaign of disinformation regarding this issue.
Hector Hurtado, a member of the national leadership of the Social Front in Defense of Economic and Social Rights of Panama, acknowledged that Venezuela has had a leading role in this area since Commander Hugo Chavez came into power. “Were made advances in education, health, housing and transportation.”
