“Findings on the Humanitarian Situation in Venezuela and the Effects of International Sanctions”
UN Official to Present in Sunday Webinar on Venezuela

Presenter: Alfred de Zayas
Sunday January 28,
3 pm – 4 pm EST / Noon – 1 pm PST

After a November mission to Venezuela, UN Independent Expert Alfred de Zayas angered the Venezuela opposition and its US government sponsors by declaring that there is “no humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.” The Alliance for Global Justice and Venezuela Strategy Group is excited to have Mr. de Zayas discuss his investigation and conclusions in a webinar.


Alfred-Maurice de Zayas (born May 31, 1947, Havana, Cuba) is an American lawyer, writer, historian, a leading expert in the field of human rights and international law and retired high-ranking United Nations official. Since 2012, he has been the UN Independent Expert on the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitable International Order (appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council).
 
In September 2014 the Human Rights Council extended his mandate through 2018. De Zayas is currently a professor of International Law at the Geneva School of Diplomacy and International Relations. He formerly worked with the United Nations from 1981-2003 as a senior lawyer with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Secretary of the Human Rights Committee, and the Chief of Petitions. Zayas practiced law in New York and Florida 1970-74. De Zayas’ work focuses on the judicial protection of peoples and minorities.
