CASE 24-2017: SUPREME TRIBUNAL OF JUSTICE OF VENEZUELA & President Maduro
REPORT ON the Initiation of Investigation of the ICC
On October 21, 2018 the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is reporting on the situation of crimes against humanity that is taking place in Venezuela because of the immoral and criminal leadership of Dictator Maduro and the Supreme Tribunal of Justice of Venezuela. In fact, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has already sentenced them as RESPONSIBLE for the charges of VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRATIC STATE OF LAW, VIOLATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS LAW, COUP D’ÉTAT, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, TRANSNATIONAL ORGANIZED CRIME, CRIMES AGAINST PEACE, AND SUPREME OFFENSE AGAINST INTERNATIONAL MORALITY AND THE SANCTITY OF LIFE.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has historically considered that the crimes against humanity carried out by the criminal government of Venezuela should be judged by the international community, especially by the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights confirms that a group of countries —among which are Argentina, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Colombia and Canada— have revalidated the ruling of the Buddhist Tribunal by requesting the International Criminal Court (ICC) to formally investigate Venezuela for committing crimes against humanity.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights agrees with President Trudeau of Canada that the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is catastrophic and is affecting millions of people.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights considers that the international community has already carried out adequate investigations on the Venezuela Case, not only because of the dozens of reports from non-governmental organizations, but also because of the report of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the report of the group of experts designated by the Organization of American States, all of which have demonstrated the existence of extrajudicial executions and other types of crimes against humanity committed by President Maduro and the rest of the executive high command, which implies that any delay of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in investigating and prosecuting Venezuela will constitute an act of negligence and impunity in the face of human rights violations such as assassinations, arbitrary detentions, torture, sexual abuse and enforced disappearances.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights states that according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) more than 2 million people have fled Venezuela since 2014, which is a product of Dictator Maduro’s criminal leadership.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights affirms that in October 2018 the Venezuelan government of Dictator Maduro not only extra-judicially murdered the politician Fernando Albán, who was kidnapped by the SEBIN Intelligence Service, but even covered up his murder by making him go through a suicide, which is another example of the criminality of the tyrannical regime of Maduro, as stated by the former Attorney General Luis Ortega Díaz.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests the prosecutors and judges of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to understand the following: each day that they delay in investigating and prosecuting Dictator Maduro of Venezuela, new deaths will occur, and each of these new deaths will also be a responsibility of the ICC for not having avoided the tragedy or fulfilled its duty of justice, and this will not go unpunished before the International Buddhist Law.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is an autonomous body that responds to the legal system of the Buddhist Nation and is also mandated to respect the fundamental freedoms and natural rights of all sentient beings on the planet, acting as an ethical supervisory body in the world.
Always with spirit of Reconciliation (Maitri),
H.E. Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha
President and Judge of the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
