The US House Committee on Foreign Affairs has scheduled for Thursday, May 8, a hearing on claims of alleged abuse of human rights apparently occurred during the street protests that have taken a death toll of 41 in Venezuela.

The congress committee posted the hearing on its website on Friday. The session will be attended by Roberta S. Jacobson, the United States Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs; Moisés Naím, an expert with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; José Miguel Vivanco, the director of the division for the Americas of NGO Human Rights Watch, and ex US Ambassador to Venezuela, Patrick Duddy, AP quoted.

For some weeks, the government of President Nicolás Maduro and the opposition coalition have been seeking rapport with the mediation of the foreign ministers of Brazil, Ecuador and Colombia and the apostolic nuncio in Venezuela.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights said last April that it expected to get details of the investigations conducted by Venezuelan authorities into police agents and military officers who presumably engaged in abuse of authority, including torture, during the protests in Venezuela going back to February.
