Venezuela Sends Letter to UN Rejecting Human Rights Report. Taken from Prensa Latina.Caracas. Jul 12.- Venezuela's permanent representative to the United Nations (UN) in Geneva, Jorge Valero, delivered on Friday a letter sent by President Nicolas Maduro to the Office of the High Commissioner of the Organization for Human Rights.


The letter reflects the Venezuelan head of state's rejection of the document presented on July 5 by High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet before the UN Human Rights Council regarding the supposed social situation in the South American country.

The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry, in a press release, notified that the letter issued by Maduro was received by Alternate High Commissioner Kate Gilmore.

The dignitary said that the position taken by the Office of the United Nations System is 'deeply damaging to the dignity of the Venezuelan people,' while noting that Bachelet during her visit to the Venezuelan territory 'did not listen to Venezuela.

'You have presented a report plagued with fake assertions, distortions and manipulations in the use of data and sources, a report lacking in balance and rigor, openly biased, which does not gather the information provided by the state but by manidas media matrices imposed by imperial communicational hegemony,' says the letter from the Venezuelan President to Bachelet.

Maduro mentioned some of the effects caused by the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States, with which they have deprived the country of more than 30 billion dollars of its oil assets abroad and have confiscated more than seven billion dollars aimed at the purchase of food and medicines.

In that sense, he assured that the authorities of the White House and its allies seek 'to produce a collapse in the country as was done with the Chile of Salvador Allende between 1970 and 1973'.

Venezuelan President stressed that the Venezuelan state is in the permanent disposition of vindicating the full exercise of the rights that assist people by their human nature.
