Venezuela's entry into UN Commission on Human Rights is a "gibe," NGO says

Patricia Andrade, the director of Venezuela Awareness, maintained in a press release that Venezuela will use its new status "to attack the countries regarded as its enemies"

NGO Venezuela Awareness regrets that Venezuela has taken a seat at the United Nations (UN) Commission on Human Rights, "considering its double standard, since it fails to respect or make reforms intended to meet the minimal requirements as a country that observes human rights. On the contrary, it furthers deteriorates and violates human rights as it pleases."

The human rights advocate based in Miami labeled as "gibe" the election of Venezuela. "In order to take on the position to which it was elected today (Monday), Venezuela should be stricter in terms of respect of human rights. Therefore, today's election can be just seen as a gibe. Any presentation to be made by Venezuela in its incumbency at the Commission on Human Rights is not at all trustworthy."
