European Parliament resolution on Venezuela's possible withdrawal from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (2012/2653(RSP))  
B7‑0240/2012

The European Parliament,

– having regard to its previous resolutions on the situation in Venezuela, in particular those of, 8 July 2010 and 11 February 2010,

 

– having regard to the statement by the EU High Representative of 28 September 2010 on the elections in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela,

 

– having regard to the statement by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) of May 4 on Venezuela,

 

– having regard to Universal Periodic Review report on Venezuela

 

– having regard to Rule 122(5) of its Rules of Procedure,

 

whereas on April 30, 2012, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez declared that his government should leave the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights over accusations of the United States' involvement in the country's internal affairs,

 

whereas the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has been strongly critical of the human rights situation in Venezuela and the need to protect free speech and judicial independence,

 

whereas Venezuelan human rights activists have voiced concerns over the possible indifference to human rights in the country that could stem from this decision,

 

whereas the Venezuelan Supreme Court has repeatedly refused to recognize binding rulings by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights aimed at protecting fundamental rights of Venezuelans,

 

whereas Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro said that Latin American nations should create a regional human rights commission that excludes the United States,

 

whereas President Hugo Chavez has approved a new labour law by decree using powers granted to him by the National Assembly in late 2010, which allows the president to enact law by decree for an 18-month period,

 

whereas President Hugo Chavez has been in power in Venezuela for 13 years and wields significant control over the state, the army, his political party and welfare organizations,

 

Calls for Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to review its decision to pull out from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights;

 

Urges the Government of Venezuela to adopt the recommendations of the Universal Periodic Review to strengthen judicial independence, protect free speech and support the work of independent NGOs;

 

Calls on the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy to make representations to the Venezuelan authorities with a view to expressing the EU's concern regarding respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law in this South American country and to firmly upholding the interests and property of citizens and companies from EU Member States;

 

Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the Government and National Assembly of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly and the Secretary-General of the Organisation of American States.
