Venezuelan American national bar association

Apr 5th, 2017. MIAMI, FL .-   The Venezuelan American National Bar Association (VENAMBAR) condemns the Venezuelan Supreme Court’s March 29th decisions Nos. 155 and 156, and later revisions, which usurp the powers of the democratically elected National Assembly. The decisions not only violate the Venezuelan Constitution, which guarantees the separation and independence of powers between the different branches of government, but also patently break away from traditional democratic values, and ultimately deny the Venezuelan people the right to shape their country’s future through democratically elected legislative representatives.

VENAMBAR repudiates these actions by the Venezuelan Supreme Court which curtail  the legislative power without affording any checks and balances to the other branches of government, and which constitute a serious setback for democracy in Venezuela. VENAMBAR further calls on the Venezuelan Government to respect the rule of law and the principle of the separation of powers, human rights, and non-interference between equally legitimate powers, which are all essential principles of democracy.
