Case No. 24/2017: Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) & President Maduro of Venezuela
Official Statement on European Parliament
The Buddhist Tribunal of Human Rights, on July 06, 2018, decides to reaffirm again that the Buddhist Spirituality does not endorse the Violation of the Constitutional Democratic State of Law, Violation of the International Human Rights Law, Coup d’Etat, Transnational Organized Crime, Crimes against Humanity, Crimes against Peace, and Supreme Offense against International Morality and the Sanctity of Life that are happening in Venezuela under the immoral leadership of the de facto President Nicolás Maduro. These facts can be demonstrated not only because the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has judged such international crimes, but also because in July 2018 the European Parliament has decided to commit itself to collaborate with the International Criminal Court (ICC) in order to investigate the crimes against humanity and acts of repression committed by the Venezuelan dictatorship.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is proud to perceive that the European Parliament has decided to ask the members of the European Union to urgently provide humanitarian aid to the Latin American countries that are receiving hundreds of thousands of Venezuelan refugees fleeing their country. In this way, it is really formidable that the European Parliament also shares the position of the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights to request Venezuela’s neighboring countries, as is the case of Colombia, to continue intensifying their solidarity aid to the thousands of Venezuelan refugees who desperately search for food and medicine.
Always with spirit of reconciliation (maitri),
Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha
President and Spiritual Judge of the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
