This Thursday the President of Colombia, Iván Duque, went to the International Criminal Court where he ratified his support for the process against Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship for crimes against humanity.
“I denounced Nicolás Maduro in the International Criminal Court 5 years ago and we have seen progress in the international criminal system,” said President Duque after holding a meeting with Prosecutor Karim Khan.
Furthermore, the Colombian president highlighted that at the time of making the complaint joined other Heads of State, as well as the Secretary General of the Organization of American States, Luis Almagro.
Regarding short and medium term expectations, he stated that he hopes the investigation will move towards sanctions, as it is the worst dictatorship that Latin America has seen in its recent history.
“I am confident that the International Criminal System will not only continue to give results, but that much more forceful processes will come against the authors of these crimes,” said President Duque.
He also made clear that his role will be to be prudent and allow justice to advance, with all the corresponding guarantees and impartiality.
