De Zayas: UN Human Rights Council’s Report on Venezuela is ‘Unbalanced’

UN Human Rights Expert Alfred de Zayas offers his take on an "unbalanced" report by High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet's office.

Former lawyer for the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights, Alfred de Zayas, says that High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet’s report on human rights in Venezuela mostly ignores the severity and responsibility of US sanctions against Venezuela.

De Zayas argues that the report left out essential aspects in its otherwise damning report on Venezuela because the council has increasingly fallen under the sway of the demands of the US government.
