#Thread Venezuela welcomed the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, former Chilean President, Michelle Bachelet, on June 19 of this year. During her visit, the official met with government representatives, opposition leaders, trade unions and NGOs.
The visit of Bachelet was significant based on the expectation and pressure on social media by anti-chavez spokespersons. 13 days after her visit, the report delivered at the UN was published, where the exclusion of important social and political data predominates.
Despite having first-hand information, offered by the national government, social organizations and human rights NGOs, the High Commissioner deliberately omitted them. The final report is a copy of a copy of the anti-Chavez NGO’s narrative.
For example, @mbachelet excludes from the report, data such as those exposed by US researchers Mark Weisbrot and Jeffrey Sachs, on the impact of US imposed sanctions on health: 300,000 people in Venezuela are at risk due to lack of access to medicines.
It also ignores figures from other independent UN reports, such as the Alfred De Zayas report in 2018, who had access to the same sources as Bachelet and clarified that US sanctions and unilateral measures by the EU aggravated the crisis.…
In his blog, De zayas points out that the Bachelet-report was made by the same team who produced reports for the former Human Rights Commissioner, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, a Jordanian prince who’s known for manufacturing "humanitarian intervention" scenarios.
Bachelet also met with victims of violent protests led by the Venezuelan opposition in 2014 and 2017, who reported first hand the assaults and physical-psychological injuries suffered in the midst of violent protests known as "guarimbas".
All these facts have been left aside in the report. Bachelet manifests the same behavior as private media, exacerbating data related to the economic crisis and deliberately blaming the Venezuelan government.
The High Commissioner also criminalized the State security forces, labeling them "extermination groups" based on reports from NGOs such as PROVEA, and community social organizations, repeating the mantra of "armed colectivos”.
In conclusion, the Bachelet report is not distinguishable from reports presented by Luis Almagro of the OAS, where only cases exposed by openly anti-government NGOs, funded by the US Department of State, were taken into consideration.
The biased conclusions of the report represent a danger for the country as it continues to promote the narrative of "humanitarian crisis" and "dictatorship" in Venezuela, which could promote more sanctions and financial aggression against all Venezuelans.
