UN Human Rights Committee orders Cape Verde to immediately suspend the extradition of Ambassador Alex Saab to the US FYI: this is not the Geneva based Human Rights Council (UNHRC) itself. It is one of 167 UN human rights committees, formed as part of a treaty, bodies with jurisdiction only vis a vis the states parties to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, of which Cape Verde (and not the US) is one. The UNHRC is obligated to pay attention to statements of the UNHR committees.

Grayzone: US kidnaps Venezuelan diplomat: the case of Alex SaabAnya Parampil speaks with attorney Femi Falana about the case of Venezuelan diplomat Alex Saab, who has been kidnapped for the crime of violating illegal sanctions in order to feed his country. Under pressure from the US, Cape Verdean authorities arrested Saab in June of 2020 when he stopped in the country to refuel his plane while en route to a humanitarian mission in Iran. The US is seeking to extradite Saab over money laundering charges, however Falana explains why the case is invalid, accusing the US of practicing 'gangsterism'. The US is persecuting Saab over his work in securing items for Venezuela's CLAP program, which delivers basic goods to 6 million households on a monthly basis for virtually no cost.

FAIR: US Sanctions Against Venezuela cause Shortages in Diesel, and in Corporate Media editorial standardsWestern corporate media have time and again proved to be reliable allies for US regime change efforts against Venezuela. Alongside the occasional military threat, Washington's strategy in recent years has relied on unilateral coercive measures commonly known as sanctions. Despite these measures being classified as 'collective punishment' and found responsible for tens of thousands of deaths, corporate journalists have been for a long time happy to downplay or totally ignore them.

Cuba

Granma: Declaration by the National Assembly of the People's Power of Cuba's International Relations CommissionOnce again, the European Parliament has fulfilled the sad role of hostage to a small group of MEPs of the far right, obsessed with destroying the Cuban Revolution, who have known links to Miami-based organizations funded by Washington. The spurious and interventionist resolution that has just been passed by the Parliament undermines this institution's credibility and reflects the double standards it applies to our country. This body clearly has no intention of cooperating or entering into dialogue, or of showing the slightest respect for Cuba as a free, independent and sovereign country.
