To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what recommendations the Government is making to the UN Human Rights Council in regard to its Universal Periodic Review into Venezuela.
14 January 2022
We are currently finalizing our statement for the UN Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review into Venezuela. The Advance Questions we have submitted to the UN highlight our concerns around humanitarian access, LGBTQ+ rights, the justice system, treatment of prisoners and the handling of corrupt individuals who cause harm to society. We expect that the recommendations in our statement will address some of these points.
