Maduro’s Death Squads ‘Have Executed 57 People in Just One Month in Venezuela’

Nicolas Maduro's Special Action police force has executed 57 people in just one month in Venezuela, according to the United Nations' chief human rights official. 

Michelle Bachelet made the damning claims in a presentation to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva yesterday, Daily Mail reports.

She said that non-governmental organisations report the Special Action police force carried out 57 suspected extrajudicial killings in July alone in Caracas.  

Her presentation followed a scathing written report issued in early July which found a 'pattern of torture' under the government of President Nicolas Maduro that included arbitrary detention, extrajudicial killings, sexual violence and enforced disappearances. 

Bachelet's presentation, which received pushback from powerful figures in Maduro's government, also noted that more than four million Venezuelans have fled the country due to declining conditions.
