The Government of Peru announced that it will request the International Criminal Court to investigate the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.
“Foreign Minister Néstor Popolizio said that he has the support of four other countries in South America to request actions against Maduro and his government’s leadership, for the commission of crimes against humanity and violation of human rights”, informed yesterday La República.
Other countries that support Peru’s initiative are Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Paraguay.
In addition, it was recently announced that Venezuelans will be requested their passport to enter Peru, and as a complementary measure, the interior minister, Mauro Medina, informed about the assistance to Venezuelan citizens seeking to regularize their immigration status in the country.
“Faced with the decision to demand a passport to Venezuelans to enter the Peruvian territory from Saturday, Medina said that the Migrations office will inaugurate on Thursday a facial and fingerprint identification system in the Binational Border Care Center (Cebaf) in the northern city of Tumbes”, explained El Comercio today.
The minister added that the migration service receives more than 2,200 daily online appointments and has been arranged to work 24 hours a day both in its headquarters in Lima and on the northern border with Ecuador, where the largest number of Venezuelan immigrants is concentrated.
