Question for written answer E-002092-19
to the Commission (Vice-President/High Representative)
Rule 130
Javier Couso Permuy (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  VP/HR — Situation of Venezuelan immigrants in Ecuador
 Answer in writing 

On 20 January, the President of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, tweeted that he had ordered the immediate setting up of ‘units to control Venezuelan immigrants’ legal status in the streets, in the workplace, and at the border’. Following Moreno’s announcement, at least one incident of violence against Venezuelan immigrants was officially recorded in the city of Ibarra, although the media reported several further cases.

In a statement on 21 January, the Venezuelan Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the Ecuadorian President’s actions, which it claimed constituted a crime against human rights and criminalised a nation. What is more, the Ministry reminded Quito of its obligation to ensure the safety and integrity of Venezuelans living in Ecuador.

1. Is the VP/HR aware of the situation of Venezuelan immigrants in Ecuador?2. Will she support Venezuela in its call to respect Venezuelan immigrants living in the country?
