Meeting June 21 with Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Venezuelan Bishops' Conference stressed that the solution to the country's social and political crisis requires electing a new president.
Bachelet visited Venezuela June 19-20, invited by the Nicolas Maduro regime. During her trip, she met with authorities in the country, as well as victims of human rights abuses and organizations that serve them.
In their meeting with Bachelet, the bishops offered her a letter underscoring the "grave crisis the Venezuelan people are going through."
Under Maduro's administration, Venezuela has been marred by violence, social upheaval and hyperinflation.
