Venezuelan Dictator Nicolás Maduro Agrees to Allow Return of UN Human Rights Office

Nicolás Maduro, the dictator of Venezuela, announced on Tuesday the decision to allow the return of the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to the country. The office was expelled back in February after expressing concerns about the arrest of activist Rocío San Miguel.

Maduro made the announcement during a television broadcast, where he was accompanied by International Criminal Court prosecutor Karim Khan, who is investigating Venezuela for possible crimes against humanity. Maduro stated that he received a proposal from Khan to reopen the UN Human Rights office in Venezuela and he agreed to overcome the previous disagreements and conflicts.

Karim Khan, who opened an ICC prosecutor’s office in Caracas on Tuesday, expressed his gratitude to Maduro for allowing the UN High Commissioner to return to Venezuela. The decision to expel the office back in February was made due to the “improper role” that the institution had developed, according to the Venezuelan regime.

The Technical Advisory Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights was established in Venezuela in 2019. Former president Michelle Bachelet, who held the position at the time, had mentioned seeing progress on human rights issues in Venezuela but emphasized that there was still much work to be done.

The UN Mission has expressed deep concern about the arrest of human rights defender Rocío San Miguel in February. San Miguel was accused of participating in a conspiracy against President Nicolás Maduro and other senior officials, as well as being involved in attacks against military units and institutions across the country.
