CASE 27-2017: Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR)
ACT ON the ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN STATES (OAS)
On April 26, 2017, it was written an Act of international approval concerning the decision of Luis Almagro, Secretary General of the OAS, for appointing Luis Moreno Ocampo as investigator on possible Crimes against Humanity committed in Venezuela. Because Luis Moreno Ocampo is a former Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, he surely may be able to determine the presence of human rights violations on a systematic and widespread scale, including torture and assassinations by President Maduro’s government against the Venezuelan civil population.
It is put at the disposal of the OAS the news that on May 4, 2017, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has developed a Legal Opinion against President Maduro for the serious crimes of “Coup d’état” and “Crimes against humanity”. As the mission of the adviser Luis Moreno Ocampo will be to interview victims and experts on human rights violations, he will surely benefit from the vision of the Buddhist Tribunal on this issue that violates the sacredness of human life.
It is recorded that on April 12, 2017 the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights had already sentenced the Venezuelan Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) for crimes of VIOLATION OF THE DEMOCRATIC CONSTITUTIONAL STATE OF LAW and VIOLATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS LAW.
However, while it is congratulated any progress that may be done to put an end to impunity in Venezuela, on the other hand, this Act is finalized notifying the OAS that the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights on June 26, 2017 has sanctioned the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights for Violations of the Human Rights of Buddhist Peoples, since this body has refused to end the impunity suffered by the Temple World Association of Buddhism in Argentina, because it has been systematically denied the Temple’s access to justice and redress for serious crimes suffered. We hope that the OAS will take the initiative to resolve this situation as soon as possible.
Always with spirit of reconciliation (maitri),
Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha
President and Judge of the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
