During an ordinary session of the Venezuelan Parliament on Tuesday, Legislator Julio Garcia Zerpa presented the proposal by the Presidential Commission for the Judicial Revolution, which has led more than 60 legislators to travel nationwide in order to listen to persons deprived of their freedom.
With the approval of this regulation, 10 new laws will have effect on the reform of the national justice system, emphasized the legislator, who highlighted the guarantees established in the text of the Venezuelan Constitution regarding the punishment of any violation of human rights.
On behalf of the opposition bench, Legislator Alfonso Campos described the legislative act as a historical milestone that places Venezuela at the forefront of the international judicial system, by including a special law that endorses national sovereignty and grants a complementary nature to the international agencies.
For her part, Congresswoman Rodbexa Poleo emphasized that the State ratifies its responsibility to investigate and punish the facts that could be human rights violations, with which it guarantees the people’s peace and security, the National Assembly stated in a press release.
The Venezuelan Parliament also approved in first discussion the bill to set up a commission that generates recommendations and facilitates mechanisms to guarantee justice and reparation for the victims of crimes in that field.
