Trump reaffirms United States considering 'all options' in Venezuela

20 Mars, 2019, 22:54 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

The UN human rights chief on Wednesday stepped up her criticism of US sanctions against Venezuela's government, a day after US President Donald Trump warned Washington could still impose "tougher" measures.

Bachelet, addressing the Human Rights Council, cited allegations that the National Police's Special Actions Force (FAES) had executed 37 people in January in Caracas in illegal house raids in poor areas supporting the opposition.

Venezuelan security forces, backed by pro-government armed groups, have quashed peaceful protests with excessive use of force, killings and torture, the United Nations human rights chief said on Wednesday.

"The United States is actively working to boost Juan Guaido, who declared himself interim president of Venezuela this year, and has imposed sanctions against a number of individuals, including Maduro and his inner circle, as well as the state-run oil company PDVSA".

The US has been steadily tightening sanctions and economic pressure on Maduro's government and openly calling for regime change.

As a result of Tuesday's sanctions, all property and assets in property of the company and its chief in the United States are blocked and all USA citizens are prohibited from dealing with them, according to the statement.

Peaceful protests were allowed, but not acts of vandalism and criminality that were being "promoted by a violent portion of the opposition, whipped up by foreign funding", he said.

He denounced measures including the blocking of $7 billion in shares of PDVSA's US subsidiary Citgo Petroleum Corp.in January.

Bachelet had previously warned that sanctions have "exacerbated" the crisis.

A team of experts from her office is in the country assessing conditions, a "positive first step", Bachelet said.
