UN’s trip to Venezuela

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WORLD -

THE United Na­tions’ top hu­man rights of­fi­cial has met both Venezue­lan op­po­si­tion leader Juan Guaido and Pres­i­dent Ni­co­las Maduro, who are locked in a pro­longed struggle over con­trol of the cri­siswracked coun­try.

Guaido said he spoke with UN High Com­mis­sioner for Hu­man Rights Michelle Bachelet about the need to ex­pel Maduro from power and end Venezuela’s “suf­fer­ing”.

Bachelet’s trip comes amid height­ened pres­sure on Maduro for si­lenc­ing op­po­nents with jail, tor­ture and vi­o­lence.
