OAS Call for Venezuelan Suspension Draws Mixed Reaction

CARACAS, VENEZUELA — Critics of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro
applauded the Organization of American States leader's call to suspend
Venezuela from the group unless the country holds "full general
elections as soon as possible," while the nation's socialist government
condemned the prospect of foreign intervention.

OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro on Tuesday released a 75-page report
accusing Venezuela of violating the rights of its people, including by
ignoring the results of 2015 legislative elections and by incarcerating
political opponents. Such actions conflict with the standards of the
Inter-American Democratic Charter that Venezuela has signed.

"Unfortunately, in Venezuela there is … need for the implementation of
the Inter-American Charter," said Carlos Berrisbetia, an opposition
lawmaker in the National Assembly. "Why? Because human rights are not
respected, the rights of Venezuelans are not respected, freedoms and the
constitution have been violated."

Rather misleading title as the article itself shows that only ones with
"mixed feelings" is the Maduro regime.
Better title would have been opposition in Venezuela supports ban,
Maduro regime opposes it.
Of course the "usual suspects", bought by Maduro with money the
Venezuelan people badly needs (Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Bolivia),
will "oppose" this but not because it isn't the right thing to do, just
because they need Venezuelan money and without Maduro that is gone.
I ully support suspending Venezuela from the OAs. Even the UN suspended
it though just for not paying its bills.
