President Maduro received the ICC Prosecutor in Miraflores

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, receives this Thursday the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Karim AA Khan, at the Miraflores Palace, located in Caracas, in the spirit of the positive complementarity established in the Rome Statute.

The meeting constitutes the third visit of Khan QC to Venezuelan territory, after the work agenda held between November 1 and 3, 2021; and on March 31, 2022.

In this sense, it reaffirms the principle of constructive dialogue, as well as the willingness of the ICC Prosecutor to meet in situ with the Venezuelan authorities.

From the previous visits of the ICC Prosecutor, Karim AA Khan QC, the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding allows the search for truth and justice through cooperation, positive complementarity, mutual support and constructive dialogue. .

In this regard, in November 2021, President Nicolás Maduro described the Memorandum of Understanding as a “historical document”, therefore “expresses the synthesis of this day that has been a step forward in relations of positive complementarity and cooperation between the Venezuelan State and the Prosecutor of the Criminal Court of The Hague”.

Subsequently, in March 2022, the opening of an office of the ICC Prosecutor’s Office in Caracas was formalized to deepen effective dialogue and technical assistance with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, an action that, according to Khan QC, facilitates “the fulfilling my responsibilities under the Rome Statute”.

The ICC Prosecutor’s Office has special advisors in Venezuela “who will be able to provide technical assistance to facilitate the transfer of knowledge, deepen and strengthen our alliances, as well as identify different areas at the institutional level”, not only to guarantee the approval of laws, but also its full implementation and application.

Earlier he met with Vice President Delcy Rodríguez

The Executive Vice President of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, held a meeting this Thursday with the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Karim Khan, who is in the country fulfilling a work agenda.

Earlier, Khan held a meeting with the Attorney General of the Republic, Tarek William Saab, where “the achievements in the protection of Human Rights in Venezuela and the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Venezuelan State and the Prosecutor’s Office of the International Criminal Court” were reviewed.

The meeting takes place within the framework of relations between Venezuela and the ICC for the search for formulas for collaboration and joint technical assistance.

This would be the third visit of the ICC prosecutor to Venezuela.
