ICC Prosecutor says from Colombia that he will visit Venezuela

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Karim Khan, suggested from Bogotá that he will travel to Venezuela at the end of the official visit to Colombia that ends this Wednesday.

“International law and justice is too important to be left to judges and prosecutors, everyone must have a part. After this mission to Colombia and Venezuela, when I return, I will have a meeting with civil society, ”said the ICC prosecutor during his participation in a panel on Wednesday morning.

The information was released just when he was meeting with the president of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace, Roberto Carlos Vidal.

At the moment, the Venezuelan authorities have not referred to Khan’s visit and details about the agenda that he will have in the country are unknown.

The government of President Nicolás Maduro recently accused the ICC prosecutor of committing “irregularities and violations” of due process and accused it of maintaining “proven links” with non-governmental organizations that have provided information against national authorities.

This action, and his contact with organizations financed with resources of dubious origin, constitute a great “doubt to the due impartiality and objectivity of said court,” the Venezuelan State stated in a statement.
