CPI will have a technical assistance office in Venezuela

The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, announced that the country enters the investigation phase

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Karim Khan, confirmed the opening of a technical assistance office in Venezuela, with the signing of a memorandum of understanding signed in Caracas with President Nicolás Maduro.

He announced that he and his team visited the premises where the office will be installed, a step that, he assured, will allow greater collaboration “to guarantee that there is more justice” in Venezuela.

“Now we will be able to come to Venezuela more often and work more closely, so that we can help more with technical assistance, with training so that Venezuela can do more to fulfill its obligations under the Rome Statute,” said the prosecutor, sitting next to Maduro in the presidential palace, in Caracas.

The signed memorandum seeks the “technical assistance and advice” that the ICC will provide to the country. However, he did not offer specific information about the content of the memo.
