Video: Venezuela and the International Community

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Speakers:

  • Beatrice Rangel, Managing Director, AMLA Consulting Group
  • Guillermo Zubillaga, Head, Venezuela Working Group, Americas Society/Council of the Americas (interviewer)

Venezuela is not a normal totalitarian regime, said Beatrice Rangel at an AS/COA Venezuela Working Group event in Miami, but a government sustained by international organized crime. Rangel, who served as chief of staff to former Venezuelan President Carlos Andrés Pérez, told AS/COA's Guillermo Zubillaga that the next steps must be for the Organization of the American States to declare Venezuela in violation of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, and then have the UN Security Council take up the matter.
