In a video shared on her social media, Sujú appointed: “the court investigates crimes like murders, arbitrary detentions, tortures and forced disappearances that the Nicolás Maduro’s regime executed in Venezuela.”
The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, considerate “that there are reasonable grounds to believe” that crimes against humanity have occurred in Venezuela, the court informed in a statement.
Bensouda told this conclusion to her Venezuelan colleague, Tarek William Saab, this Wednesday in the office of the ICC at the Netherland city La Haya.
