On video: Venezuela’s Rule of Law Crisis

At a side event to the UN Human Rights Council session, the ICJ reviewed today the latest developments in Venezuela, highlighting the extremely serious human rights situation and prevailing impunity, and discussed action that should be taken by the Human Rights Council to address the crisis.

At the event, the ICJ also presented its new report The Supreme Court of Justice of Venezuela: an instrument of the Executive Power, showing how this highest court has subverted the constitutional order and has consummated a serious rupture of the Rule of Law in Venezuela.
