Former UN rapporteur says US sanctions are killing citizens

The first UN rapporteur to visit Venezuela for 21 years has told The Independent the US sanctions on the country are illegal and could amount to “crimes against humanity” under international law.

Former special rapporteur Alfred de Zayas, who finished his term at the UN in March, has criticized the US for engaging in “economic warfare” against Venezuela which he said is hurting the economy and killing Venezuelans.

    Bad enough so far, but it’s already much worse than just rhetoric – conditions have been building for an imperialist invasion of at least two and possibly three if Columbia joins in with the lethal alliance against Venezuela
