HAVANA TIMES – The Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) will meet this week to address the situation of the dictatorships in Venezuela and Nicaragua.
In the first case, the government of Nicolas Maduro runs the risk of being repudiated by the OAS, and in the case of Daniel Ortega, is on the verge of the application of the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
The director of the Inter-American Institute for Democracy (IID), based in Miami, Beatrice Rangel, believes that the current situation in the region and the forceful report of the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) on crimes against humanity committed by the regime of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo could allow the sponsors in the OAS to obtain the 24 votes needed to approve the Charter.
In this vote, the 15 countries that make up the Caribbean Community (Caricom) would have an important weight, which will also be very important in the case of Venezuela.
